RESEARCH TRIANGLE PARK, N.C. — GlaxoSmithKline said it is establishing a dedicated team to support community pharmacists and other healthcare professionals.
Effective March 28, GSK said its community pharmacy liaisons will provide information and tools to help community pharmacists communicate with their patients about chronic diseases and the appropriate use of medicines and vaccines.
In developing the new team, the drug maker said it consulted with community pharmacists to better understand their needs and to ensure that the new team will provide a helpful service.
“Our research shows that community pharmacists want to spend more time engaging with their patients, and many patients would welcome more counseling about their medication,” said David Moules, GSK VP channel development and sales. “The GSK community pharmacy team will provide community pharmacists with education and tools to support those important patient conversations.”
