As healthcare providers, pharmacists have an important role to play in supporting self-care. FIP is launching a new 17 event digital programme: ‘Shaping the future of self-care through pharmacy”’. The programme is composed of 8 episodes that will focus on accelerating UHC for all by enabling self-care through community pharmacy. Additionally, nine episodes will focus on self-care support for community pharmacy teams.
Pharmacists have a crucial role to play in the prevention, screening, management and treatment optimisation of non-communicable diseases. FIP is launching an extensive programme of digital events to support pharmacists in this area.. The programme will consist of various series of events focusing on topics such as diabetes care and management, optimising the use of medicines and patient safety, pharmacists’ role in healthy nutrition and weight management, pain management, cancer care and anticoagulation treatment management.
The FIP Development Goals Digital Programme “Setting goals for the decade ahead” is a comprehensive online event series providing coverage of the 21 goals over 21 events in 2021.
Episode 8 of the FIP Development Goals Digital Programme has as a focus – people-centred care. The goal visualizes collaborative interprofessional strategies and people-centred professional services to support the prevention, screening, clinical management, and therapeutic optimisation of non-communicable diseases (NCDs) and long-terms conditions (LTCs). Hence, the event will seek to amplify how pharmaceutical education, workforce, practice and sciences can be integrated to ensure pharmacists’ contribution to the prevention and management of NCDs.
1. Describe and explain the components of FIP DG 15 (and its three elements: workforce & education, science and practice).
2. Showcase the FIP tools, evidence, and resources to support DG 15 implementation across the three elements.
3. Identify priorities across practice, science, and workforce & education within DG 15
4. Engage our members in an activity to support monitoring and evaluation of the Goal through data evidence
On 25 October 2021, it will be the third anniversary of the World Health Organization’s Astana Declaration on Primary Health Care (PHC), for which FIP pledged its commitment to accelerate progress in strengthening PHC. In 2020, the WHO published its Operational Framework for PHC to translate the vision of the Astana Declaration into actions. To mark this date and showcase how pharmacists can utilise and contribute to the WHO operational framework, FIP is organizing the digital FIP Global Summit on Primary Health Care. The summit will host a high-level discussion with the WHO to explore the strategic levers needed for pharmacists to strengthen primary health care.
At the end of this session, participants will:
1. Learn about WHO’s operational framework on primary health care to translate vision into actions
2. Explore initiatives from FIP member organizations on primary health care
3. Engage in a high-level discussion on strategic priorities needed for pharmacists to strengthen primary health care
This event will focus on the role that pharmacists can play in providing pharmaceutical care for people with hearing impairment or a disability linked to hearing loss. Pharmacists must provide clear messages and adapt their communication strategies to this particular population group to ensure optimal use of medicines and medical devices, and they need to have the knowledge and skills to do so. Also, people with hearing loss face different challenges and this problem becomes more relevant with age. Pharmacists can support patients in detecting early signs of hearing loss and taking the appropriate actions.
Poor medication adherence has emerged as a major public health concern in the last decade, and pharmacists may play a vital role in medication adherence by implementing many of the solutions demonstrated at COVID-19.
FIP adapted the theme “Pharmacy: Always trusted for your health” for World Pharmacy Week; and expanding on that theme, FIP would like to welcome your attendance to this event. The event has been sponsored by an unrestricted educational grant by Pfizer.
The expected outcomes of the event are:
1 to discuss the role of pharmacists in medication adherence and communication.
2 to share some regional and global thoughts on the common communication gaps and challenges that are experienced in all patient facing sectors
3 to highlight various regional and global strengths, accomplishments, and success stories in terms of medication adherence and communication in pharmacy.
Asthma affects up to 1 in 10 people globally. Living well with asthma depends on avoiding triggers and using good, safe medicines in the right way at the right time. However, there is currently much sub-optimal use of medicine that can result in waste and harm including avoidable hospital attendances and admissions. Hospital pharmacists can be an important part of the asthma pathway and powerful change agents. This webinar will provide updates on major changes in international guidelines that highlight asthma is an inflammatory condition and for safety no-one over 12 should be treated with a short-acting beta-agonist (SABA) alone without inhaled corticosteroids. You will hear from experts from the Asthma Right Care social movement about how to make impactful change happen in the provision of asthma care within secondary care settings.
By the end of this webinar participants will have:
1. Received a critical update on international asthma guidelines and the implications for hospital pharmacists
2. Learnt about tools available to start a conversation with patients and prescribers about Asthma Right Care including how to address over-reliance on SABA and acute care and how to use the right medicines in the right way
3. Discussed what leadership opportunities, motivation and capabilities are needed to bring about change such as improved discharge from emergency departments and respiratory wards; and shared approaches between hospital and community pharmacists.
Many jurisdictions around the world have implemented Apology Legislation and non-punitive medication error reporting requirements in order to create transparency, learning and prevention to enhance patient confidence and patient safety in the healthcare system and work towards creating a Just Culture or a Culture of Safety in health professionals and practice sites. This webinar will present the value and the experiences of jurisdictions, which have enacted legislation and additional standards of care, for community pharmacy practice. Spread and scale of learning through international collaboration exemplified by the international medical regulatory authority will also be presented.
1) The importance sections of the FIP #4757 (Pharmacists Role in Medication without Harm) and Culture of Safety.
2) The value of Apology Legislation on medication error resolution, transparency and patient confidence.
3) The value of centralised medication error reporting in community pharmacy practice to enhance patient safety, quality assurance and prevent errors.
4) The importance of international collaboration for the evolution to “Just Culture” and supportive legislation.
