I’m working with a national M.E. charity, Action for M.E., as their Volunteer Pharmacist, providing information about pharmacy services, writing health and pharmacy-related articles, and putting together a resource for pharmacy professionals about M.E.
I’m gathering thoughts and suggestions from both people with M.E. and pharmacy professionals because it’s important that the resource includes a full picture of M.E. and addresses the issues pharmacy professionals need to know about our illness in order to make pharmacy services accessible and useful.
I believe collaboration between patients and health professionals is necessary to develop a person-centred approach to pharmaceutical care, so as part of my preparation, I’ve asked both groups questions in articles on my blog.
The deadline for submitting your suggestions is 26 October 2015.
