The role of pharmacists in digestive wellness: an overview
Gastrointestinal health and digestive wellness can be influenced by several lifestyle factors, including diet and stress, and using certain types of medicines. It is important for pharmacists to consider these factors when interacting with patients who present with such symptoms. Different non-prescription medicines are available to treat symptoms related to GI complaints and digestive wellness, rendering pharmacies key access points for trusted advice and access to self-care products which can provide relief and care to affected individuals. This event marks the World Digestive Wellness Day (29 May).
