Pharmacy-based asthma services : protocol and guidelines
AbstractRealizing that pharmacists have much to contribute to better health through improved medication management, and as the incidence of asthma is increasing especially among the young, the EuroPharm Forum decided at its Fourth annual meeting in 1995 to establish a new project within the area of asthma. This protocol and guidelines have been developed by the WHO collaborating centre for drug policy and pharmacy practice development, Hilleroed, Denmark for the Programme for Pharmaceuticals of the WHO Regional Office for Europe. The EuroPharm Forum Asthma Services Task Force has reviewed and commented on the first drafts, and the protocol and guidelines were approved by the Forum at the Sixth annual meeting in 1997. The protocol presents guidelines on how to deal with asthma patients in everyday practice at the pharmacy and how pharmacists can be involved in this area. The underlying philosophy is good pharmacy practice and the implementation of pharmaceutical care. we hope that this protocol will be useful to the pharmaceutical associations of the member countries and that it will stimulate professional practice. We also hope that the associations and their members will benefit from being part of this European project on pharmacy-based asthma services, not only in exchanging information and sharing experiences but also in comparing the results achieved
