Program for pharmacists planned

The Ministry of Health has finished preparing an inventory with the names of pharmacists with BA degrees to involve them in the special government plan for pharmacies.
Sources said the ministry has moved to minimize the dangers resulting from the misuse of medication by issuing directions to health directorates in all provinces to start the immediate application of clinical pharmacy. The directive is issued to all hospitals and pharmacies in medical centers.
The ministry called on these directorates to form special committees for clinical pharmacy to develop pharmaceutical care. They are also to reduce the cost of treatment by guaranteeing the appropriate medicine for the illness.
The chairman of the committee will be linked with pharmaceutical care in the provinces until clinical pharmacology in the directorate is established.
