Here’s what you can read in the June print edition of AJP, out to subscribers this week
The June edition of AJP continues to focus on the evolving coronavirus pandemic.
In the issue, we look in depth at the new Serious Medicines Shortages Substitution policy, which now has its first medicine included. There have been a number of serious concerns raised about this by pharmacy leaders. We take a look at the state of play.
We also take a look at the rise of telehealth in 2020 (also being driven forward by the impact of the pandemic) and what this may mean for pharmacy practice, now and in the near future.
Also of immediate importance to all in community pharmacy is Bruce Annabel and Mal Scrymgeour’s look into their (expert) crystal ball to see what the pandemic recovery period economic outlook may be for community pharmacy.
A revised and modified version of this article will appear in our daily newsletter later this month.
Our clinical features for the month are:
- Headaches & migraines – helping patients understand whether they have a migraine or another type of headache
