World Pharmacist Day 2015

posted Sep 13, 2015, 8:52 PM by Chong Ching Wern   [ updated Oct 21, 2015, 5:50 PM ]

World Pharmacists Day is held yearly on the 25th of September. 

This year, the World Pharmacists Day theme is 'Pharmacist: Your partner in health'

'Medicines must go hand in hand with pharmaceutical expertise, or in other words, with pharmacists. This is a partnership essential to the responsible use of medicines. But other partnerships are also important. Every day three million pharmacists and pharmaceutical scientists around the world act as partners to patients, other health care professionals and other scientists, throughout the whole supply chain and with the shared vision of better health.

Across the globe our profession is clearly demonstrating all the requirements of great partnerships; shared goals, commitment, vital skills and rapport, as well as the ability to have difficult talks and to overcome obstacles.'
