Health professional regulation - facing challenges to acting in the public interest Attend the leading international conference on health professional regulation Health professional regulation - facing challenges to acting in the public interest Health professional regulation faces many challenges in a world characterised by political, social, economic and technological change.

76th FIP World Congress of Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences 2016

Buenos Aires, Argentina

Description  

During the 2016 FIP Congress in Buenos Aires, Argentina pharmacists and pharmaceutical scientists will rise to the challenge to reduce the global disease burden. Are you prepared to take this challenge? Of the top 10 causes of death around the world, nine are diseases. Heart disease, stroke, HIV/AIDS, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, lung cancer, diabetes and diarrheal diseases are among this list. But the burden of disease is not just about the years of life lost due to death; it is also about years lost due to living in less than full health. As a result, there has been an effort to change from a sickness care model to a health model. Our role in improving the outcomes of treatments is the essence of the pharmacy profession and of pharmaceutical scientists. Creating, preparing and providing medicines is based on this role. Moving from a sickness model to a health model means that pharmacy is also now about disease prevention and health promotion.
