The landscape of community pharmacy continues to evolve, in the light of the new NHS structure and exacerbated by the COVID-19 pandemic. Although the general public may not be fully aware of the behind-the-scenes activity, it is evident that many people are looking upon community pharmacy as their first port of call for healthcare advice. You may be fielding queries from patients in an increasing number of clinical areas or providing advice and guidance to people in a more general way, and this is where Guidelines for Pharmacy can help.
Along with summaries on allergy, COVID-19, diabetes, pain, men’s and women’s health, skin and wound care, and many more, we are delighted to have recently launched a series of clinical guideline summaries on a brand-new topic, oral health, covering common conditions such as:
• Periodontal disease
• The link between diabetes and periodontal disease
• Maintaining good oral health in pregnancy.
Community pharmacy plays an important role in the delivery of oral health advice, and it’s vital for pharmacy teams to be knowledgeable on the latest clinical guidance on oral health-related topics that are likely to be raised in the community pharmacy environment.
The Guidelines for Pharmacy quarterly handbook is circulated free to all UK community pharmacies. Join our online network of over 4700 registered users from community pharmacy at guidelinesforpharmacy.co.uk and start to benefit immediately.
