Quality use of medicines and women’s reproductive health: A combined responsibility for all pharmacists

Research output: Contribution to journalEditorial

Abstract

The importance of a healthy start to life is increasingly recognised as playing a critical role in influencing immediate and long‐term health outcomes for future generations. This begins well before conception and extends beyond delivery, with pharmacists playing a critical role in the provision of evidence‐based pharmacotherapy at various stages.1 While many would view such roles as limited to those working in specialist obstetric settings, the reality is that such knowledge and awareness of issues related to women's reproductive health and associated medication use should be viewed as core competencies for all pharmacists. The increased recognition of such relies on enhancing knowledge and experiences, identified as key strategies for enhancing contributions from those working outside of specialist women's health settings.
