Shaping the future of self-care through pharmacy

“Shaping the future of self-care through pharmacy” programme

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.

Self-care’s contribution to universal health coverage – Healthcare’s and people’s perspectives

A webinar organised by:
9 December 2021

Summary
There is variability across the globe in the provision of universal healthcare. Self-care is the ability to maintain and improve individual’s health, prevent or limit diagnosed illnesses, and address self-treatable conditions. Self care is not no care and it is not necessarily practised in isolation. It may involve support and advice from others, such as expert pharmacy teams.  This event discusses how self-care can contribute to Universal Health Coverage from the perspectives of providers of healthcare services and public and patients. 

Aim: To discuss the perspectives of providers of healthcare services and the people accessing them about how self-care can contribute to universal health coverage.

Learning objectives: 

  • Explain the extent to which self-care is embedded in healthcare systems;
  • Discuss cultural approaches to enabling self-care as part of UHC, such as healthy lifestyles;
  • List healthcare systems and patients/public’s needs for enabling self-care;
  • Discuss the contribution of localised self-care delivery to UHC
