The Pharmacy Cares
The pharmacy Cares is an initiative to highlight and orient pharmacists to words patients. Pharmacy care is in its infancy in India. there is utmost need to introduce the pharmacy care in the country. The patients in India are really facing the inconveniences due to absence services like drug information and pharmaceutical care. Hence we have chosen the name of our blog as pharmacy care.
The pharmacy cares will always focus on roles and responsibilities of pharmacists in better health care and safe medication for the patients. In our experience, the patients of chronic illness are haunted by morbidities of the disease not due to non availability of drugs but due to ignorance of disease and drugs. Pharmaceutical illiteracy being omnipresent, the role of pharmacist to help the patients drug information is universal.
The patients are at greatest risk in the absence of services of a qualified pharmacist. In India most of the pharmacist and health care professional think that pharmacists major role is in manufacture related activities rather than patient care. Hence all the outcomes from schools of pharmacy from India except Diploma in Pharmacy never think of a job in community pharmacy. There is utmost need in the country to change over this trend and bring back the role of clinical, community and hospital pharmacy at par with the developed countries of the world.
