Les services du pharmacien dans les pays anglo-saxons et leurs possibles applications en France

Abstract : The job of pharmacist has been evolving all around the world. In western countries, the average of life expectancy is increasing and the population is ageing. As a consequence, the need of care will go up significantly in the years to come. In France, older people of 65 and over will double by 2070. Whereas the number of physicians, who are the primary healthcare professionals, is decreasing. To meet the growing demand of care, acting efficiently is of the utmost importance. Indeed, the cost weighs heavily on the society. It is constantly on the rise. As a result, all healthcare professionals must take action, each on its own field. In particular the pharmacist who is the only professional present throughout the country in a uniform way thanks to the territorial network. All western countries are experiencing the same problem. That is the reason why we need to examine the implemented solutions in different countries. More information about these actions and how they functioned in practice was required. Our priority was to form an opinion. We decided to observe them in Anglo-Saxon countries. We studied the impact of some measures ease this burden. One of them is the Medicine Use Review which can increase the adherence in chronic patients up to 10%. There is also the immunization by pharmacists. It can reach people who usually do not get in touch with other professionals. The Minor Ailment Scheme would enable to free up time for physicians and emergency services but allow substantial savings. Not only these services are cost-effective but they also allow a better care access for people. Then we compared with France, we observed the differences and the possible measures of improvement. Despite encouraging results in these countries, these services struggle to find their place in France but the pharmacist’s commitment will allow these services to be a success.
