As ethical matters are core topics of interest to the profession, in 2015 FIP appointed Dr Betty Chaar and Mr William A. Zellmer to co-chair the inaugural FIP Ethics Advisory Group, established for the purpose of consultation and advocacy for FIP. Its mission is to advocate for professionalism in all contexts of pharmacy practice and the pharmaceutical sciences as they relate to the profession.
The group not only initiates sessions at the FIP annual congress to educate and contribute to the enhancement of the profession of pharmacy, but also convenes workshops to discuss and deliberate on contemporary issues pertinent to our profession. At every annual conference since 2015, the FIP Ethics Advisory Group has convened and welcomes any interested pharmacist to attend and contribute to its deliberations.
Anyone interested in pharmacy ethics is welcome! (Please contact Ms Paula Cohen for more information: firstname.lastname@example.org)
