Rapporteur, Resolution CM/Res(2020)3 on the implementation of pharmaceutical care for the benefit of patients and health services, Strasbourg, Council of Europe, March, 2020, Notes: [The resolution will provide health authorities across Europe with guidance and recommendations supporting the promotion and implementation of pharmaceutical care as a quality-enhancing element in healthcare systems at regional and national level. Also, healthcare professionals and associations will have a legal basis for the implementation of pharmaceutical care and related working methods in their daily activities. The primary aim of all healthcare professionals involved in the medication process should be to achieve the best possible improvement in quality of life for the patient. However, the potential benefits of medications are sometimes not fully realised (e.g. due to lack of medication adherence) or, even worse, inappropriate use of medicines can lead to increased morbidity or even mortality.Pharmaceutical care directly and comprehensively addresses the medication needs of patients and, in doing so, contributes to the overall efforts of healthcare professionals in providing care that is centred around the patient, optimising medication use and promoting rational use of resources.], Report, PUBLISHED  TARA - Full Text  URL  Handle
