 Description of the activity:  Background: As future pharmacists we believe in our role remind ourselves and other pharmacists from time to time with our role in the society. So we are taking the lead to remind the community pharmacists in the pharmacies with the pharmacist role in the community and clarify the role of pharmacists to the society.

 Aims: To make the pharmacy a recognizable profession and showcase the role of pharmacist in the community. It serves as our outreach to the greater community to help us draw the public interest as to what role a pharmacist can play in first-line health care.

 Methods and used tools/materials: Posters and flyers are distributed in all community pharmacies in Fayoum and Bani-sweif, Beside that we prepared a survey to be targeted to patients and pharmacists to be a link of discussion between the team with patients and pharmacists and also to collect data about pharmacist’s condition in the society nowadays.

 Results: Let’s describe what has happened before mentioning the results to get the full image; - BSPSA team made a workshop to discuss the survey content and the way of communication with the pharmacists and the patients. - We made role plays between each others to put ourselves in the same situation to be able to manage and lead it. - We were supported with support letters from Fayoum and Bani-sweif Pharmacists Syndicate to all pharmacies to make the task easier for the team. - We were two teams one in Fayoum and the other was in Bani-sweif. - The two teams started at the same time, every team met in pharmacists syndicate and started the campaign:

 Comments and/or ideas arising from the activity: -

-

The associations can be provided with support letters from the General Pharmacists Syndicate signed from the president of the syndicate to be directed to all pharmacies so as to make the pharmacists cooperative with them. The prize of the EPSF to the best pharmacy was a great idea but all pharmacists think of it as valueless to more extent and not expressive it would have been something with high value. The survey was supposed to be clarified to the associations before they took the responsibility of discussion of it with pharmacists and the public people. Concerning photographing, most of pharmacists rejected to be photographed at all; also in the public places the insisted to delete all the photos taken, If the team was supported by presence of one representative from the syndicate in every university it would have been a point of strength.
