The Conference is organized by Frederick University's Department of Pharmacy with the support of the Cyprus Pharmaceutical Association and it will be held on May 10th in Nicosia with the participation of the Ministry of Health, OAY and OSAK.

Frederick University’s Department of Pharmacy is holding a Conference on new services provided to the public by pharmacists in the GeSY era. The Conference will be held on Wednesday, May 10 at 17:00 at the University’s new building in Nicosia.

During the Covid-19 pandemic and later, Pharmacies promptly responded to the need for conducting rapid tests. The developments in the health sector with the operation of the General Healthcare System (GeSY), put on the agenda the issue of providing more, new and specialised services of Pharmacies. Achieving a high level of service to the public requires the establishment of a new operating framework for pharmacists as specialised Health Scientists. It also requires the close cooperation of the stakeholders involved. These issues will be discussed at the Conference organized by the Department of Pharmacy of Frederick University with the support of the Cyprus Pharmaceutical Association.

Dr. Charalambos Triantis, Assistant Professor and Head of the Department of Pharmacy, and Ms. Eleni Piera Isseyegh, President of the Cyprus Pharmaceutical Association will address the Conference.

Speakers are Mr. Plutarchos Georgiades, Vice President of the Cyprus Pharmaceutical Association, Mr. Ioannis Kkolos, Senior Pharmaceutical Services Officer at the Ministry of Health, Dr. Panayiotis Petrou, Senior Officer at the Health Insurance Organisation, and Mr. Marios Kouloumas, President of the Patients Association. Presentations will be followed by a discussion moderated by Dr Triantis and Dr Panagiotis Theodosis-Nobelos, Lecturer in the Department of Pharmacy at Frederick University.

"Frederick University's Department of Pharmacy has traditionally upheld the principles of pharmaceutical care and prepared scientists to be able to respond and contribute to the well-being of citizens. It is in this context that we participate in the dialogue on any developments in the field of pharmacy," says Dr. Triantis, Chair of the Department.

The Department of Pharmacy at Frederick University is the only accredited Department of Pharmacy operating in a Cypriot University, equivalent to the three Departments of Pharmacy in Greece (University of Athens, Aristotle University and University of Patras). The Department offers a BSc in Pharmacy, an integrated master's degree in Pharmacy, an MSc in Advanced Cosmetology and Natural Health Products and a PhD program in Pharmacy.
