koboko commented on Staffing for pharmacies in Remote Areas.

Nice idea. The regulatory body must welcome this idea as it aims to ensure medication safety and positive therapeutic outcome in patients which is what the regulatory body seeks to achieve. In a developing country like my country (Ghana) where the pharmacist to patient ratio is 1:13,000 well below the WHO standard of 1:2000 your idea will help bridge the gap to quality pharmaceutical care. I manage a pharmacy and the challenges you describe are real. I am willing to offer my pharmacy as one of the test sites during the test phase. What I want to know is, will your proposed idea restrict one pharmacist to a pharmacy or a pharmacist can be assigned to more than one pharmacy?
