Scope and Importance:
Pharmacy is the science and technique of preparing as well as dispensing drugs and medicines, their supply, appropriate use and effects. The eventual concern of pharmacy is to provide appropriate medicines to the patient along with the proper use of it. Pharmacy is one of the essential part of the health care system. It includes the health sciences and chemical sciences which eventually lead to development of safe and effective pharmaceutical drugs.
The word pharma is the root word for the modern term pharmacy which was used in 15th to 17th century. However, the main root word was Pharmacos which means poison.
The role of pharmacists include the traditional duty such as compounding and dispensing medicine along with modern roles such as health care, assessing clinical facilities, assessing medications for safety and efficacy, and furnish drug information. Pharmacists, pharmacy technicians and pharmacy assistants all have unique roles in pharmacy. Pharmacists need to have particular degree along with training, whereas pharmacy technicians and assistants can train during the course or gain a qualification through full time study.
The scope of pharmacy practice includes more traditional roles such as compounding and dispensing medications, and it also includes more modern services related to health care, including clinical services, reviewing medications for safety and efficacy, and providing drug information. Pharmacists, therefore, are the experts on drug therapy and are the primary health professionals who optimize use of medication for the benefit of the patients. Pharmacists, also known as chemists or druggists are healthcare professionals who practice in pharmacy, the field of health sciences focusing on safe and effective medication use. A pharmacist is a member of the health care team directly involved with patient care. Pharmacists are often the first point-of-contact for patients with health inquiries. Thus pharmacists have a significant role in assessing medication management in patients, and in referring patients to physicians.
The global pharmaceutical industry revenue is forecasted to reach an estimated $1,226.0 billion by 2018, with good growth over the next five years (2013-2018). Markets predict the pharmaceutical packaging market will be worth $80 billion by 2020.
