Eye health awareness
This year’s National Eye Health Week (18–24 September 2017) presented an opportunity for healthcare organisations to highlight the importance of eye health and the need for regular sight tests.
Pharmacists and opticians should work together to better manage patients with dry eye within primary care, with one local scheme serving as a model for pharmacists to refer patients to opticians when necessary.
Multidisciplinary panel of experts agree on best treatment of dry eye conditions in community pharmacy
The Salvadore hosted a panel meeting of experts from the world of ophthalmology, optometry and pharmacy to discuss the appropriate management of dry eye conditions in the community pharmacy setting and identify particular learning needs as part of an editorial campaign to be run through 2016.
The Salvadore held a round table discussion on the management of dry eye in community pharmacy at the SalvaDore’s headquarters in London on 25 April 2016.
Every day, week and month in the UK there is an attempt to raise awareness or money for one cause or another – from ‘Love your liver’ throughout January to ‘Anger awareness week’ in December. How can pharmacists use these events to make a profit and promote their services?
