Integrating Social Justice into Practice for Pharmacists
As the country struggles with social unrest, it is more important than ever for pharmacists, arguably the most accessible health care professional, to recognize the impact of social determinants of health on the health of populations. By understanding and empathizing with patients, they can help break down barriers that may prevent patients from receiving the highest quality care. The more pharmacists that are aware of the struggles that patients have, the more empowered they may feel to change their practice.
