The Pharmacist Defence Association (PDA) have today launched their sixth annual patient safety survey, which invites pharmacists to share their experience of safety in the workplace.
This survey is open to employed and locum pharmacists wherever they work.
The PDA is urging all pharmacists to take part in the 2021 Safer Pharmacies Survey. They have said that the findings will help them to understand the current working environment for pharmacists and could really help to change things for the better.
Previous PDA Safer Pharmacies Survey results have featured in pharmacy media, national newspapers and on television. This helps to influence and draw attention to the issues pharmacists face which affect patient safety. When pharmacists tell us how things are, we do the same when we meet with the pharmacy regulators, the government and employers.
The survey is based on the PDA Safer Pharmacies Charter.
