Pharmacists have a vital role to play in the provision of high quality, cost effective and integrated care services, for the benefit of patients and the public.
As the pharmacy regulator, the PSI works to assure high standards of patient care and good pharmacy practice in pharmacies in Ireland.
The statutory Code of Conduct for Pharmacists is a public declaration of the ethical standards which govern practice of the profession and which the public, patients and other healthcare professionals require and expect of pharmacists.
The PSI has developed a Core Competency Framework for Pharmacists in Ireland which describes the competencies and behaviours of pharmacists in their daily practice.
The PSI regularly issues practice guidance for pharmacists and pharmacy owners to facilitate compliance with pharmacy and medicines legislation and to ensure high standards of practice.
To support the development of the role of the pharmacist in the delivery of health services, the PSI has produced a number of reports that examine current practice and potential future developments.
The PSI regularly issues practice updates to help the profession to keep informed of changes or developments in pharmacy practice and patient safety issues from a national and EU perspective, and to ensure compliance with legislation and the Code of Conduct for Pharmacists.
