Medicine expert theme for World Pharmacists Day 2018
â€œPharmacists are your medicines expertsâ€ is the core message of this yearâ€™s World Pharmacists Day.
â€œThis year, we are focusing on the extensive expertise that pharmacists have and put to use every day to ensure better patient health. This expertise is applied through science and research, through educating the next generation, and through transforming patient needs into services,â€ said Dr Carmen PeÃ±a, president of FIP, the International Pharmaceutical Federation.
â€œThe theme of World Pharmacists Day emphasises that pharmacists are a trusted source of knowledge and advice, not only for patients but for other healthcare professionals. For every patient who walks into a pharmacy, pharmacists ensure that the right medicine is provided at the right dose and in the most suitable formulation. We work with other healthcare professionals to ensure that every individual receives optimal treatment. Moreover, as one of the most accessible health care professionals globally, we use our learning to protect health and prevent illness,â€ sheÂ added.
The official logo and a Twibbon are available at www.fip.org/worldpharmacistsday.
This year, FIP is also producing a set of four animations outlining the value that pharmacists represent, to be released in the run up to World Pharmacists Day for everyone to share.
World Pharmacists Day falls on September 25 2018.
