Theme for World Pharmacists Day 2015 will be partnership

The theme for next year’s World Pharmacists Day (25 September 2015) will be “Pharmacists: your partners in health”, the International Pharmaceutical Federation (FIP) announced.

The theme for next year’s World Pharmacists Day (25 September 2015) will be “Pharmacists: your partners in health”, the International Pharmaceutical Federation (FIP) announced.

The theme was chosen to stress the confidence and close collaboration that pharmacists have with patients and other healthcare professionals. It could also be used to emphasise to policy-makers the concept of pharmacists being providers of solutions to governments through their services; a key tactical approach in FIP’s vision. The theme covers self-care, but equally relates to all elements of the supply chain, industry, research and hospital,” said FIP President Dr Carmen Peña. “Partnership, in other words cooperation and collaboration, to ensure that the best possible quality of healthcare is provided to individuals and the community at large is also a component of FIP’s Code of Ethics for Pharmacists and its Model Oath for Pharmacists.

Next year will be the fifth World Pharmacists Day and it will be used by FIP’s members around the world to highlight the impact and added value of the pharmacy profession and its role in improving health to authorities, other professions and the media as well as to the general public.

Great partnerships are based on agreed visions. They have shared goals, commitment, vital skills, rapport, and the ability to have difficult talks and overcome obstacles. Every day 3 million pharmacists and pharmaceutical scientists around the world act as partners to patients, other healthcare professionals and other scientists. They put all of these elements into practice with the vision of better health,” FIP CEO and general secretary Mr Luc Besançon said.

Official FIP resources to support World Pharmacists Day will be available at www.fip.org/worldpharmacistsday in January.
