About this society:
SIFACT (Società Italiana di Farmacia Clinica e Terapia. Italian Society of Clinical Pharmacy and Therapeutics) was founded in 2012 and since then is active at national level as a reference institution for the pharmacists of the NHS who work in the area of clinical pharmacy.The pharmacists of the NHS are professionals who have graduated in pharmacy and have completed a 4-year specialization course of Hospital Pharmacy. In the framework of clinical pharmacy, the perspective of clinical pharmacists is not represented by medicines, but by patients. Hence, the priorities of clinical pharmacists are not oriented towards the handling of medicines, but are specifically focused on the therapy of patients. Typically, this type of work is carried out in a multidisciplinary team that includes physicians, nurses, epidemiologists, and all other professionals working in the hospital.
The aim of SIFACT is to pursue the optimisation of health care and to promote the constitutional right of citizens to public healthcare. Since its foundation, SIFACT recognises the principles of honesty, transparency, independence, passion, and courage. www.sifact.it
