Section G: Awards for winners of national competition. Patient Counseling Event is one of the main projects of the Professional Development Committee in Egyptian Pharmaceutical Student’s Federation (EPSF) as assigned by the International Pharmaceutical Student’s Federation (IPSF).
Patient Counseling Event is utilized to provide the pharmaceutical students with the scientific data they need to provide the counseling for patients and also the skills they will need to deliver this scientific data including the presentation skills, negotiation skills, body language control and other skills.
Patient counselling Event would serve to not only help educating the patients about their medications, but also to open communication lines further between the pharmacist and the patient. This would allow the pharmacist to give better health care as he/she would be better informed of the patients’ overall health, and could further help the patient for leading a healthier life -Mission
