FIP Symposium on the role of the pharmacist in self-care

A symposium entitled “Self-Care in the 21st Century: A Vital Role for the Pharmacist”, took place in conjunction with the 74th International Pharmaceutical Federation (FIP) World Congress of Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences (Bangkok, Thailand, 30 August – 04 September 2014).
The symposium provided an overview of global healthcare trends affecting self-care, with a focus on the role of the pharmacist in facilitating OTC medication management. WSMI gave a presentation which outlined the public health and economic benefits of self-care.
We are grateful to FIP for the opportunity to discuss trends affecting self-care with pharmacy colleagues from around the world.
