Meta-pharmacy Applications – WHAT WILL THE FUTURE OF PHARMACY AND DIGITAL HEALTH LOOK LIKE?
Talk Description :
The practice of pharmacy has evolved from simply dispensing drugs to a more service-based model, where pharmacists counsel patients on how to prevent and manage the disease.
Trends in health care are moving toward a stronger emphasis on preventive medicine and healthier behaviors, and pharmacist expertise can help to achieve these goals.
The implementation of VR for patient counseling and care can help pharmacists in serving this function.
Therefore, the talk will be providing insights into the applications of metal pharmacy and future perspectives.
