  4. 5. Look stright in the face of pharmacy <ul><li>with open eyes </li></ul><ul><li>positively </li></ul><ul><li>honestly and </li></ul><ul><li>in good faith </li></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>...than we can create a vision - the vision of future of pharmacy </li></ul></ul></ul>

  8. 9. Key imperative for partnership <ul><li>Vision </li></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>a view on the future </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>a picture of what the partnership can achieve. </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><li>Relationship </li></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>means the way partners feel toward one another </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>genuine expressions of respect, concern, and trust. </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><li>Results </li></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>mean the things partners get done together </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>the outcomes of joint effort. </li></ul></ul></ul>
  9. 10. The need for sharing vision <ul><li>1. Do we need to have vision? </li></ul><ul><li>2. Do we already have it? </li></ul><ul><li>3. Would we like to share it? </li></ul><ul><li>4. To whom? </li></ul><ul><li>5. Who are our partners? </li></ul><ul><li>6. Who could be additionally our partner? </li></ul><ul><li>7. How can we do it? </li></ul>
  10. 11. Why? <ul><li>By sharing vision we provide shared understanding of </li></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>the issue to be solved and </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>unify the various stakeholder perspectives. </li></ul></ul></ul>
  11. 12. <ul><li>If there is no shared vision </li></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>It will not be possible to achieve </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>a truly collaborative and cooperative </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>working environment </li></ul></ul></ul>
  12. 13. It will be very difficult <ul><ul><ul><li>to involve actively all stakeholders </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>to assess whether real progress is being made </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>to manage the vision scope </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>to validate the decisions made </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>to bring new developers or stakeholder representatives into the project </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>to have effective communication among the stakeholders </li></ul></ul></ul>
  13. 14. <ul><li>Pharmaceutical sciences are in biomedical sciences </li></ul><ul><li>Faculties of pharmacy are among biomedicine faculties </li></ul><ul><li>Physician, nurse and pharmacist are key health professionals – without them health care can not be delivered </li></ul>
  14. 15. Regarding partnership <ul><li>New world will bring new rules which anticipates: </li></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>building of new alliances, </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>coordination of strategies, </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>focusing on work together,... </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>...than we will make more progress. </li></ul></ul></ul>
  15. 16. Who is your biomedicine partner? <ul><li>F uture/present healthcare professional </li></ul><ul><li>S tudent of any biomedical studies at graduate level </li></ul><ul><li>G raduated professional </li></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>i.e. nurse , physician and pharmacist </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>they are c ore of the health care team </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>w ithout these key health care professionals, quality health care can’t be delivered </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><li>In providing pharmaceutical care your partner is patient , too. </li></ul>
  16. 17. Pharmacy profession <ul><li>H as undergone a change in the way it is practised </li></ul><ul><li>It is a consequence of technological advances </li></ul><ul><li>Contribution to c hanges in the nature of health care delivery. </li></ul>
  17. 18. Influences on pharmacy practice <ul><ul><ul><li>T he demand for advice over the counter (OTC) in pharmacy </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>T he desire for patients to self-medicate ( increases globally on a daily basis ) </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>D eregulation of medicines from the prescription-only category to pharmacy medicines ( continues to provide the pharmacists greater possibility ) and </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>M ore and more medicines for the treatment of minor disorders. </li></ul></ul></ul>
  18. 20. These changes , includ e <ul><li>I ncreased accountability of prescribers </li></ul><ul><li>T he shifting emphasis towards disease prevention </li></ul><ul><li>S elf-medication with focus on primary care </li></ul><ul><li>Changes in l ead ing of health services </li></ul><ul><li>All have impact on the delivery of primary and secondary pharmaceutical care. </li></ul>
  19. 21. Changing of PHC infrastructure <ul><li>I n many countries - to meet the needs of patients </li></ul><ul><li>N ew important roles for nurse practitioners </li></ul><ul><li>R ecommendations for other professionals to take on the role of prescriber ( besides doctors ) </li></ul><ul><li>T his change will alter the way in which patients receive their care, especially </li></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>for chronic disease </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>for minor ailments </li></ul></ul></ul>
  20. 22. The role of the community pharmacist <ul><li>R emains pivotal in health care </li></ul><ul><li>E specially with regard to advice for and treatment of minor illness </li></ul><ul><li>P harmacists therefore will have to demonstrate that they are competent practitioners to be trusted with this additional responsibility </li></ul>Pharmacist as break-dancer
  21. 23. Some changes will not happened so quick and everywhere, also some of them will not be possible even if key partners would accept the role exchange scheme. <ul><li>I do believe that you don’t </li></ul><ul><li>think that this kind of </li></ul><ul><li>role change is possible. </li></ul>
  22. 24. Additional responsibility <ul><li>R equire ments </li></ul><ul><li>greater level of knowledge and </li></ul><ul><li>understanding about commonly occurring medical conditions : </li></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>new drugs </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>key concepts and strategies to prevent medication errors </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><li>especially of drug safety (pharmacovigilance) </li></ul></ul></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><li>and process safety (preventing medication error s in healthcare) for the sake of patient safety and obtaining the best therapeutic outcomes </li></ul></ul></ul></ul></ul>
  23. 25. What should we accept <ul><li>Not everything what is offered by the system </li></ul><ul><li>But we should accept </li></ul><ul><li>an activity that belongs to pharmaceutical care </li></ul><ul><li>an activity throuh which pharmacist can show his competence and </li></ul><ul><li>prove that she/he is active member of health care team who contributes to the benefit of patients </li></ul>
  24. 26. WHPA <ul><li>The World Health Professions Alliance </li></ul><ul><li>( FDI , ICN , WMA and FIP ) has been established as unique alliance of dentists, nurses, physicians and pharmacists </li></ul><ul><li>to facilitate working together and to address global health issues striving to help deliver cost effective quality health care worldwide. </li></ul>

  27. 29. Is there future for pharmacy? <ul><li>YES </li></ul><ul><li>Our new generations will continue and search the best way for the prosperous future of pharmacy </li></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>by opening themselfs to pharmaceutical environment </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>by accepting new thechnological advances </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>by accepting new approaches towards their partners </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>by proactive functioning and coaching the pharmacy by themselfs. </li></ul></ul></ul>
