For Immediate Release:
October 1, 2018 — Phoenix, AZ
STATEMENT: PEPID, LLC announces its participation in American Pharmacists Month, a celebration in support of pharmacists across the country. The American Pharmacists Association (APhA) officially launched American Pharmacists Month in 2004. The 2018 American Pharmacists Month theme is “Easy to Reach, Ready to Help” in recognition of pharmacists’ crucial role in providing easily accessible health and medication advice, along with fulfilling prescriptions and facilitating vaccines and health tests.
During American Pharmacists month, PEPID will promote awareness of the services pharmacists provide for Americans and acknowledge their potential roles in the changing healthcare climate with emerging Precision Medicine. PEPID will show support by posting from the American Pharmacists Month social media kit with #APhM2018, and publicizing their tools that support pharmacists.
Ninety-percent of Americans live near a community pharmacist, making pharmacists the most accessible healthcare providers in the industry. During natural disasters like the recent Hurricane Florence, pharmacists play an important role in planning for public health and emergency patient care, and PEPID has several resources to support them in these roles:
Portable Drug Companion contains a complete drug database, dosing and drip calculators, and the PEPID drug interaction generator.
Pharmacist Pro with AHFS is the one-of-a-kind pharmacist decision support tool with thousands of clinical situations and diseases; fully integrated with AHFS Drug Information Essentials®.
AHFS Drug Information Essentials contains critical information pharmacists need at the point of care from the extensive bestselling AHFS Drug Information®.
AHFS Drug Information by PEPID is the most comprehensive source of unbiased drug information with the complete, unabridged AHFS Drug Information® ready for use at the point of care.
Patient Medication Education is printable patient education handouts in Spanish and English, created to improve patient treatment adherence.
This month-long observance recognizes that pharmacists make America safer by giving medication safety information, preventing diseases through implementing vaccinations, and providing advice for diabetes, asthma, blood pressure and pain management. With over 100,000 over-the-counter drugs and supplements that don’t require FDA regulations, pharmacists protect Americans’ health with their invaluable knowledge of drugs and interactions.
