World Pharmacists Day 2019

World Pharmacists Day 2019
Published Sunday 22 September 2019

Safe and effective medicines for all!

World Pharmacists Day 2019, held on September 25, will promote safe and effective medicines for all. The topic aims to promote pharmacists’ crucial role in safeguarding patient safety through improved medicine use and reduced medication errors.

"Pharmacists use their broad knowledge and unique expertise to ensure that people get the best from their medicines," said FIP president Dominique Jordan. "We ensure access to medicines and their appropriate use, improve adherence, coordinate care transitions, and so much more. Today, more than ever, pharmacists are charged with the responsibility to ensure that when a patient uses a medicine, it will not cause harm."

World Pharmacists Day was adopted by the International Pharmaceutical Federation (FIP). September 25 was chosen because it is the date that FIP came into existence in 1912. The purpose of World Pharmacists Day is to encourage activities that promote and advocate for the role of the pharmacist in improving health, to highlight the value of the pharmacy profession to stakeholders, and to celebrate pharmacy. 

FIP has even released an app that pharmacists can use to make their own video about pharmacists profession, pharmacy or moto explanation and share it with global colleagues https://pharmacourse.ae/en/webinar/index.

 

Save the date and get ready to celebrate World Pharmacists Day as well as pharmacists’ contribution to global health!
