Policy for Evidence based Pharmacy Education

While modern practices, including the development of clinical pharmacy, are important, many basic issues await significant change in developing countries.

  • Medicines can often be found stored together in pharmacological groups rather than in alphabetical order by type.


  • Fridge space is often inadequate and refrigerators unreliable.


  • There are different challenges, such as ensuring that termites do not consume the outer packages and labels or that storage is free of other vermin such as rats.


  • Dispensary packaging and labelling can be woefully inadequate and patients leave with little or no understanding of how to take medicines which may have cost them at least one week's earnings.


  • Medicines are often out of stock, not just for a few hours but for days or even weeks, particularly at the end of the financial year.


  • Protocols and standard operating procedures are rarely found.



  • To define pharmacy service competencies across all settings and levels of the health system.


  • To establish a global platform for ongoing dialogue, sharing of evidence, practices and lessons learned, resources and tools for pharmacy education and workforce planning.


  • To gather and analyse data on academic/ faculty workforce and review and develop capacity development strategies that meet local regional or global needs.


Evidence based pharmacy covers a wide realm of possibilities for and evidence supporting pharmacist roles to shape:

  • The future of the profession evidence based pharmacy.


  • The practice of pharmacy in which the pharmacist makes decisions.


  • Taking into account the best available current research evidence, their expertise and the needs and preferences of the patient.
