Forum: What does ‘dispensed’ mean to YOU?


“i speak with many young pharmacists (and most pharmacists are young to me these days) and I have observed these new comers place a different meaning to the term ‘dispensed’ to me.

When I qualified as a pharmacist, the word dispensed described what was given out to the consumer. However, these ‘young pharmacists’ think dispensed means what data is put into the computer so to this subset, a correct dispensing can result in the wrong product being handed out.

From my point of view, a correctly dispensed item is a desirable outcome.”
