About the Global Pharmacy Exchange

It's easy to feel isolated in the pharmacy profession.  So often you're in a team but the solitary pharmacist... or you've wandered down the path of a niche specialty where peers are few and far between.

And yet the pharmacy workforce is routinely relied upon to safeguard patient safety; to organise a health system's supply chain; to progress the frontiers of medicine discovery; or to provide a moral compass for financing decisions.

Rather a lot to shoulder on your own, wouldn't you say?

And what about using pharmacy professionals to push the boundaries of healthcare?  Using our voice to bring about access to quality medicines for everybody? Applying our skill to ensure safe and judicious prescribing? Sharing our knowledge to combat the menace of falsified and substandard pharmaceuticals?


Surely this doesn't just urge a collaborative effort... it demands it?

What better place to start than learning from one another, working together and empowering fellow members?  In other words, a Global Pharmacy Exchange.  So let's...

Connect.  Collaborate.  Create Change.
