Dear members,

There is another project that is occurring in the community that can help to boost the knowledge of the general public about the professional role of pharmacists. Please read on:

到藥房 問藥效

中大屈臣氏合辦

【明報專訊】英美病人習慣用「啡色紙袋」盛載藥物,帶到社區藥房查詢藥物療程及是否適合自己。類似概念最近引進本港,中大與屈臣氏個人護理店合辦「藥歷輔導計劃」,免費助病者了解所服藥物的功效,以及劑量是否合適。

Hopefully, the patients and the public will through such means become better aware of how much they have been deprived when they are without the professional guidance of the pharmacists on how to manage their medications. They will then learn to ask, to seek and to find.

Our pharmacists must at the same time play our roles to bridge the gap between clinicians and patients. One reminder is that there may be many clinical indications when certain drugs are prescribed. If we have doubts, we should seek to communicate with the prescriber so as to clarify the purpose and intentions of the prescriber. In no way should the pharmacists attempt to make guesses or jump to conclusions. It is through working together with the clinicians that we can build up the synergy and augment each other’s roles and functions. We do not wish to cause confusion or risk our relationship with either the patients or the clinicians.
