I was a Clinical Pharmacist at Accredo for 7 years, specializing in IVIG and Alpha-1 Antitrypsin Therapy.
Pros: Supplies, work at home atmosphere (no traveling during the snowy seasons), distance was ideal with regards to the office
Cons: Long hours, On-Call schedule due to limited staff, large volumes of calls
Spent most of the day talking with the patients answering various questions regarding their therapy, ranging from side effects to reported infections. Help established shipments by reviewing the supplies and drugs that were needed in order to conduct the infusion. Shared knowledge and interactions with various personal within my department from different parts of the country. Constant contact with Nursing, Reimbursement, and Patient Advocates in order to assist the needs of the patient. Everyday offered a new and exciting challenge from the patients, which enabled to establish relationships with them. Difficulty with the job involved the insurance aspects and limitations base on the patients policy.
