In Ireland, sales of non-prescription analgesics containing codeine have grown strongly in recent years, raising concern within the Irish healthcare community. A new protocol for the sale of non-prescription codeine containing medicines (CCMs) was developed and trialled in one pharmacy, with the aims of educating customers on their appropriate use.. The access to the whole abstract and the presentation file is available to FIP members and to congress participants of that specific congress.
