TALLAHASSEE, Fla., June 12, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Everyday, pharmacists all over the country serve an intermediary role between the physician and the patient. These professionals have a deep understanding of medication, their interactions and are qualified to provide medical advice to patients. Despite these qualifications, American pharmacists are limited to what medications they can provide to ailing patients. A recent article in Forbes explores the efforts to reduce such limitations. While pharmacists, such as Terry Yon, believe that the allowance for pharmacies to provide more routine medication would improve health and economic factors for patients. Many medical practitioners are against this proposed change, as they feel it would put patients in danger and ruin the traditional patient-physician relationship.
The article was prompted by a recent proposal to the FDA that called for creation of a third class of drug categorization. This class would refer to specific "nonprescription use" medication that a pharmacist would be allowed to distribute to customers. As stated in the Federal Release, "some drug products that would otherwise require a prescription could be approved as nonprescription drug products with some type of pharmacist intervention as their condition of safe use." The article's author feels that it would be justified to allow a pharmacist to provide inhalers to asthmatic individuals or Epipens to distressed patients facing immediate allergic reactions.
Terry Yon believes that registered pharmacists should be allowed to distribute a wider array of medication following proper guidelines and protocol. This practice would not be unlike what advanced registered nurse practitioners already provide. Yon explains, "Florida currently allows pharmacists to dispense certain prescriptions drugs by formulary now. Pharmacists can also administer injections, and to my knowledge there have been no negative effects."
According to Yon wider opportunity to get proper medication from your pharmacist will help financially troubled individuals seek care when they cannot afford multiple doctors visits. In fact, minute clinics have started to emerge all across America in large and local pharmacies; patients can come to these places for quick diagnosis or common, low-end medical problems for an affordable and convenient solution.
For Yon, and those who support the transition, pharmacists can supply a lot more than just medication. These professionals have a vast medical knowledge that touches on many different conditions. Yon states, "Pharmacists can treat certain skin conditions, various levels of pain, high cholesterol, asthma, ear aches and many other conditions." If physicians are willing to stop trying to claim territory over patients, many believe that a greater responsibility for pharmacists will allow more people to get proper medical treatment that they would not otherwise receive.
