Council of Europe Resolution on the Implementation of Pharmaceutical Care—A Step Forward in Enhancing the Appropriate Use of Medicines and Patient-Centred Care

8 Feb 2024 10:12 PM | Anonymous member (Administrator)

Pharmaceutical care was proposed to address morbidity and mortality associated with medicine-related problems. It utilises the pharmacist’s expertise in medicines, their relationship with the patient and cooperation with other healthcare professionals to optimise the use of medicines.

The Committee of Ministers of the Council of Europe has adopted a resolution on the  implementation of pharmaceutical care for the benefit of patients and health services (Resolution CM/Res(2020)3).

The EDQM (European Directorate for the Quality of Medicines & HealthCare) through the Committee of Experts on Quality and Safety Standards in Pharmaceutical Practices and Care (CD-P-PH/PC), is actively working on guidance concerning medication review which is an essential part of pharmaceutical care. It is also examining remote and online access to medicines, an emerging and challenging area for policy makers.
