LASUTH Pharmacists celebrate World Pharmacists Day

World Pharmacists Day was created by the International Pharmaceutical Federation (FIP), when the council of this organization voted to establish the event in the late 2000s during a conference in Istanbul, Turkey. The aim of the day is to bring attention to pharmacists and the positive benefits they offer when it comes to health and FIP encourages all its members to get involved to make the event a success. It is an event marked worldwide on Monday 25 September 2017, the theme of this year’s day is “From research to healthcare: Your pharmacist is at your service.” (www.fip.org)

Community access to a pharmacist at a local or hospital pharmacy is commonplace today, but not many people are aware of the other important roles that pharmacist perform. This year’s theme is a chance to highlight that,”
•   Your Pharmacist is your first point of call when it comes to drug matters.
•   Medicines are an integral part of your wellbeing.
•   Always take your drugs as recommended by your Pharmacist
•   Do not share your Drugs with others, rather refer them to a Pharmacist.
•   Report any reaction you noticed with your drugs to your Pharmacist Immediately.
