Pharmacists have a pivotal 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 for 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 Core Competency Framework for Pharmacists describes the competencies and behaviours that should be demonstrated by pharmacists in their daily practice.
The PSI publishes practice guidance for pharmacists and pharmacy owners to facilitate compliance with pharmacy and medicines legislation and to ensure high standards of practice.
This section provides useful information about changes or developments in legislation, pharmacy practice and patient safety issues.
This section provides learnings from complaints and fitness to practise inquiries. All registrants should consider how they can use these learnings to review and improve their own practice and policies.
The PSI has produced a number of reports that examine current pharmacy practice and potential future developments, to support the development of the role of the pharmacist for patient benefit.
