ABSTRACT:
Patient safety is being identified more and more as a key priority for action that calls for a coordinated and group effort. Medication mistakes are the main reason people get hurt or hurt themselves in healthcare systems. The workforce at pharmacies, who are specialists in medications, is crucial in reducing prescription errors and addressing the global challenge of patient safety. The role of chemists in ensuring patient safety is critical. Pharmacists are responsible for ensuring that a patient won't suffer injury or die from taking a medication after receiving it and using it. The International Pharmaceutical Federation (FIP) acknowledges the crucial role pharm play in achieving regional, national, and global patient safety goals. The FIP collaborates with partners, stakeholders, and members from around the world to advocate for pharmacies' roles in advancing this global patient safety agenda and to imagine a world where people have safe access to healthcare and medications. Community pharmacy practise now include patient care services in addition to pharmaceutical product distribution. Similarly, optimising medicine and preventing adverse events during the whole drug use process need to be part of a community chemist's approach to patient safety, in addition to preventing errors during medication delivery. Community pharmacies have long struggled with connectivity to patient data and other healthcare providers, which has an impact on patient care delivery and safety. Three novel developments in connectedness in community pharmacy practise are shown here, which improve patient safety when community pharmacists provide patient care services during the whole medication use process.
