Narace wants pharmacists to take on greater role

From Trinidad and Tobago's Newsday:
Health Minister Jerry Narace wants pharmacists to take on a greater role as caregivers, decision makers, communicators, managers — in short he wants them to become “seven- star” pharmacists.

According to Narace, the annual Caribbean Association of Pharmacists convention, currently taking place in Trinidad, would give pharmacists time to reflect on the idea of “seven-star” pharmacists, exchange ideas and set the tone for the Caribbean pharmacist of the future who will become partners in the health care reform.

Narace was speaking at the opening ceremony of the 28th annual CAP convention at the Hyatt Regency ballroom on Tuesday.

Attending the convention are pharmacists from Antigua, Barbados, Bahamas, Cayman Islands, Canada, Dominica, Guyana, Jamaica, Spain, St Kitts/Nevis, St Lucia, St Vincent and the Grenadines, Turks and Caicos, USA, UK and Trinidad and Tobago. ...more
