Inside the Pharmaceutical Journal
This year’s Salary and Job Satisfaction Survey contains all the usual questions, but it also delves into how the coronavirus pandemic has impacted the working lives of pharmacists.
The young and healthy folk who flout social distancing rules may be at a lower risk of coronavirus, but their carelessness may have grave consequences for our most vulnerable, says The Pharmaceutical Journal’s Wayne McLean.
As all sectors of pharmacy are being put under immense pressure to maintain patient care, Tony Scully writes to reassure readers that we are doing everything we can to deliver supportive, up-to-date content.
The Pharmaceutical Journal wasn’t short of strong views this year — whether it was a criticism of clinical guidance or a defence of the pharmacy profession. Here are the opinions that resonated most with you in 2019.
Among our most-read features in 2019 was an investigation into whether pharmacists are dispensing too many multicompartment compliance aids, and another on why thousands of patients are being left on potentially risky drug combinations involving anticoagulants.
Another year may have flown by, but that does not mean pharmacy professionals have not been investing time to lay important foundations for a thriving career.
Medicines-related harm is an issue close to the hearts of all of those who work in pharmacy, making our infographic on medication errors the most popular of 2019.
This year, our peer-reviewed research papers received more than 400,000 unique page views.
Our research briefings are concise and informative; they keep readers up to date with the latest developments in science and clinical research — from novel uses for existing drugs, to studies assessing potential new treatments.
The Pharmaceutical Journal has been a vital resource for pharmacists in 2019, with a staggering 3.5 million page views across our learning and CPD articles — up 38% from 2018.
