A Student's Journey in Medication Management at Casa el Buen Samaritano

For her capstone project at Casa El Buen Samaritano, Joslyn Amaya, an occupational therapy student from UTMB, is embarking on a transformative journey. Focusing on medication management, her 14-week project at Casa highlights the intersection of patient care and holistic wellness.

Joslyn's role is multifaceted. It involves translating and triaging medication information while offering consultations on implementing routine medication management strategies. She has found patients to be receptive and eager participants in their healthcare journeys, seeking knowledge about their medications, readings, and refills.

A cornerstone of Joslyn's project is the series of educational sessions she conducts for patients. Covering topics ranging from chronic diseases like high cholesterol to diabetes management, these sessions delve into medication specifics and lifestyle adjustments crucial for long-term health.

Joslyn shares her thoughts on Casa, saying, "It's a really great clinic. I've never seen one like it before. You can tell they care a lot about their patients, and that's really special." This captures the essence of Casa's focus on putting patients first.

Moreover, Casa's collaboration with educational institutions like UTMB underscores its commitment to continuous improvement and innovation. By nurturing the talents of students like Joslyn, Casa enriches their learning experiences and strengthens its capacity to serve the community.

As Joslyn continues her capstone project, she is poised to make a lasting impact on both Casa and the patients it serves. Together, we are forging a path towards enhanced patient well-being and more significant health equity.
