It therefore called on alumni and, indeed, all pharmacists “to make the healthcare of their patients their topmost priority”. This assurance was given on Monday, September 25 as the world marked World Pharmacists Day. “The pharmacist plays an important role in various aspects of healthcare delivery including education on rational use of drugs, drug use in pregnancy, management of chronic diseases, counseling of HIV, tuberculosis, and cancer patients, amongst others.” The School has also urged the public not to hesitate in consulting the pharmacist on any drug-related issue. The School is gearing up for the climax of its 10th anniversary in November. Source:|Ghana ]]>
