Since 2005, Danish community pharmacies have had an agreement with the Ministry of Health to provide 'Check on Inhalation Technique' (TPI) service, a special service to people with asthma and COPD to ensure proper medicine use. According to the Strategy for Pharmacies in Denmark, the employees carrying out TPI service need to have a certification.. The access to the whole abstract and the presentation file is available to FIP members and to congress participants of that specific congress.
