National Pharmacist Day is a date set aside to honor and recognize the positive impact that pharmacists have in health care. Pharmacist recognition days are crucial for increasing awareness about the importance of the profession.
Pharmacists are healthcare professionals with specialized education and training who perform various roles to ensure optimal health outcomes for their patients through the quality use of medicines. Pharmacists may also be small-business proprietors, owning the pharmacy in which they practice. Since pharmacists know about the mode of action of a particular drug, and its metabolism and physiological effects on the human body in great detail, they play an important role in optimization of a drug treatment for an individual.
The American Pharmacists Association currently consists of more than 62,000 practicing pharmacists, pharmaceutical scientists, student pharmacists, pharmacy technicians, and others interested in the profession.
EMS supports pharmacy educators with tools designed to train the next generation of pharmacists.
