Happy Pharmacy Month! 

 

Pharmacy is one of the oldest of the health professions concerned with the health and well-being of all people; and today, there are more than  300,000 pharmacists licensed in the United States providing services to ensure the safe and effective use of all medications.

The safe and effective use of medication, as a cost-effective alternative and a mechanism to avoid more expensive medical procedures, is a major force in moderating overall health care costs.  Today’s powerful and complex medications require greater attention to the manner in which they are used by different patient population groups—both clinically and demographically. It is important that all users of prescription and nonprescription medications, their families or their caregivers, be knowledgeable about and share responsibility for their own drug therapy.  

Pharmacists have extensive education and expertise on drugs and medication therapy, which makes them ideally suited to work collaboratively with patients and their health care team members to improve medication use and outcomes. Pharmacists provide patients with expertise, knowledge and accessibility, all crucial factors to support improvement in our nation’s public health.  Pharmacists are best positioned to be the health care professionals to help patients improve their adherence to their medications, and provide patient care services that ensure optimal medication therapy outcomes; and the Wyoming Pharmacy Association has declared October as American Pharmacists Month with the theme “Know Your Pharmacist, Know Your Medicine.”
