World Pharmacists Day is an opportunity to reflect on the many ways in which pharmacists work to improve the health of patients and the community. This year, the theme is ‘Transforming global health’, one which speaks to the way in which pharmacists have adapted to aid the COVID-19 response.
At Monash Health, we are proud to have an expert Pharmacy team, who provide access to safe, effective and affordable medicines. They continually build on their knowledge and expertise to deliver optimal health outcomes for our patients. Led by Sue Kirsa, Director of Pharmacy, the team is comprised of pharmacists, pharmacy technicians, store persons and administrative employees.
On Friday 25 September, we celebrate and thank our pharmacists for the critical role they play in ensuring medicine use is safe and effective. A thank you video by the Monash Health Pharmacy Department is available on the pharmacy intranet page.
Happy World Pharmacists Day! #WPD2020
