6.7.1 Education and Training:

The objective is to ensure that all health personnel involved in the diagnosis, prescription and dispensing of drugs, as well as consumers, receive adequate theoretical and practical training in rational drug use. It will, therefore, be necessary to take the following initiatives:

i Promote the teaching of the concepts of rational drug use in pharmacy, medical, nursing and veterinary schools;

ii Teach communication skills in pharmacy, medical, nursing and veterinary schools to promote rational prescribing and dispensing; and

iii Develop educational strategies and programmes directed at the public on appropriate use of drugs.
