Transforming pharmacy practice for improved care and management of chronic respiratory diseases
Asthma and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease are two common chronic respiratory diseases that affect hundreds of millions of people worldwide. Pharmacists have an important role to play in their prevention, care and management. FIP has developed a new handbook to support pharmacists and their organisations in providing a range of chronic respiratory diseases-related services. This handbook — which will be launched at this event — also identifies the knowledge and skills that pharmacists require for the provision of such services, thus offering guidance to academic institutions and CPD providers. This handbook is part of the FIP Practice Transformation Programme on Non-Communicable Diseases.
- Explore the role of pharmacists in the prevention, care and management of chronic respiratory diseases and its complications;
