Outstanding or Standing out? - An Opinion on the Position of Pharmacists in India

Anandhasayanam A, Smitha Sarah Thambi

This commentary or opinion is about the pharmacists position in India. Whether the pharmacist receives due recognition in various fields for which he or she was professionally groomed As a member of the healthcare team, is he or she really in a position to add value to any related process from manufacturing till administering and follow up of the patient What is the market scenario Which other professionals compete with the pharmacist And how the life sciences professionals share the pharmacists table Are all commented upon. The teaching and imparting of pharmacy education, though is expanding in terms of quantity, did the pharmacist make an impact in real quality terms Is what is discussed in this commentary. If there needs to be a change, it should start from education and not by just demanding positions for the pharmacists. Respect and due recognition for the profession is yet to be commanded in full.
