Pharmacy colleges should provide clinical practice to students as it will help integration of pharmacy in-patient care, said S. Geethalakshmi, Vice-Chancellor, The Tamil Nadu Dr. M.G.R. Medical University, here on Saturday.

She was speaking at the second convention of the Indian Association of Colleges of Pharmacy here.

The World Health Organisation had said that healthcare targets could not be met until capacity was built into the healthcare system. But if one observed the current scenario, pharmacy practice was isolated without patient care. Therefore, the focus should be on development of an adequate and appropriate health care workforce where clinical practice was integrated into pharmacy.

Clinical pharmacists played an important role in providing unbiased drug information to the medical fraternity. But their role had become much more important considering the fact that they provide patient counselling, do adverse drug reaction monitoring, and drug use review.

She said that in a fully integrated practice model, pharmacists should have dedicated service assignments.

B. Suresh, Vice-Chancellor, JSS University, Mysuru, and president, Pharmacy Council of India, said that pharmacy profession shifted from product-oriented to patient-oriented approach. He spoke about pharmacy programme and the responsibilities of the new generation pharmacists.

R. Vijaykumar, managing trustee, SNR Sons Charitable Trust; L. Gopalakrishnan, managing trustee, PSG and Sons Charities; Dr. Nalla G. Palaniswami, chairman, Kovai Medical Center Research and Educational Trust; and K. Senthil Ganesh, managing trustee, RVS Educational Trust; were present.
