I developed the Forensic Pharmacy Corner website over a period of ten years. It provides an interface between the law and the practice of pharmacy in South Africa. Various topics are covered and notes generated from real life situations as they unfold over time. The new Consumer Protection Act is also addressed in the topics. I author all opinions and experience counts in this complex regulatory field.The application of the law to pharmacy practice is not a simple matter. Most of the South African law is not codified or written down for ease of access. The democratisation of South Africa with the introduction of the Constitution has modified, for the better the interpretation of statutory instruments. This has created new opportunities in all spheres of life, including business.
Student life is important. It is where foundations are created for the rest of your life. Studying hard is worth it. The sacrifice you put in now will pay handsome dividends in the years that lie ahead of you. Study with purpose and always keep the end goal in sight.
Every interaction with a patient involves the law albeit in most instances going unnoticed. Being aware of the broader implications enriches one's life and puts a new perspective on patient care, the primary objective of any healthcare provider.
