HIGHLIGHT OF TOPIC: THE ROLE OF COMPLEMENTARY MEDICINE INPHARMACY TODAY
The demand for complementary medicine, especially herbal medicines and nutritional supplements, is increasing worldwide. In fact, it is not a surprise when herbal medicines and nutritional supplements are deemed to be the most common items sold in community pharmacies.
Nevertheless, are we, pharmacists, ready to place complementary medicine in good custody? How do we ensure quality advice is given to warrant safe and efficacious use of complementary medicine alongside with conventional treatment?
Mr. Bobby Mehta, chief pharmacist for the UFS Dispensaries Ltd in Australia, will be sharing his perspectives on complementary medicine in pharmacy, as well as guiding us on the use of evidence-based resources pertaining to complementary medicine.
If you agree that being a pharmacist, knowing more about complementary medicine could assist you better in your daily practice, then join us at the MPS 50th Anniversary Seminar from 12-14 May 2017!

MESSAGE FROM RESEARCHERS IN MONASH UNIVERSITY
Dear community pharmacists,
We would like to kindly request your assistance in taking part in this survey on the communication issues you face when dealing with patients who are Deaf or Hard of Hearing in the community pharmacy. Research has shown that these patients face a lot of communication barriers while trying to seek information and treatment from community pharmacists, and this has led to them either using their medications incorrectly thus experiencing side effects and a lack of efficacy, or not going to seek care altogether. Thus with this survey we hope to be able to identify the barriers to communication and use the findings to develop methods to overcome this, as well as provide better services to the hearing impaired community.
The survey will only take 5-10 minutes of your time, therefore we would truly appreciate if you could give us your feedback. If you are practising in Selangor, KL, Perak, Penang or Johor,

Thank you for your help.
"From research to health care: Your pharmacist is at your service" is the theme of this year's World Pharmacists Day.
"This theme was chosen to reflect the numerous contributions the pharmacy profession makes to health. From research and development of medicines, to educating future pharmacists and pharmaceutical scientists, and providing direct care, we do all this in the service of our patients and communities," said FIP President Dr Carmen Peña.
Watch the Campaign Animation from FIP:

"We want to emphasise that pharmacists are the backbone of health care in many different settings. But providing care does not begin in community or hospital pharmacies. Taking care of patients starts with recognising the health issues of populations and developing medicines, policies and education to tackle them. We pharmacists are often there at the very beginning of the process ? when the first molecule that effectively treats a disease is identified," Dr Peña added.
World Pharmacists Day is used by FIP's members and others around the globe to highlight the value of the pharmacy profession and impact on improving health to authorities, other professions and the media, as well as to the general public. FIP has produced resources for this year's campaign in the six official United Nations languages: Arabic, Chinese, English, French, Russian and Spanish. These include an animation and other materials for print and social media.
FIP is inviting pharmacists to support World Pharmacists Day by creating profile pictures for their social media accounts using the official FIP Twibbon or a specially designed "Your pharmacist is at your service" placard. The resources are all free to use and available below.
