Pharmacy Day - inform your local contact person

Throughout Germany, pharmacists are using this year's “Day of Pharmacy” to provide information about organ donation. Because although the German Organ Transplantation Foundation (DSO) reported a record level of organ donation for the past year, the experts see further need for action.

Almost 1,300 people donated their organs in 2010 after death, according to the German Organ Transplantation Foundation (DSO) earlier this year. In order to further increase the willingness of the population to donate organs, pharmacies across Germany will provide information on the subject of organ donation on tomorrow's "Pharmacy Day" under the motto "There is a lifesaver in everyone".

More than 10,000 pharmacies provide information about organ donations Every year, the Federal Association of German Pharmacists' Associations (ABDA) initiates the “Day of Pharmacy” to raise awareness of the “importance of the medical profession for the supply of medicines to the population” through nationwide campaigns in public pharmacies. According to the ABDA, the focus of the day of the campaign is on "patient care by the pharmaceutical staff and the wide range of services offered by pharmacies". In addition, many pharmacies would use the day "to make their customers aware of their special competencies - from diabetes to asthma, for children and the elderly, from homeopathy to prescriptions", the Federal Association of German Pharmacists' Associations said in a current press release. A total of over 10,000 pharmacies are involved in the day of the campaign. Under this year's motto "There is a lifesaver in everyone", the pharmacy teams provide information on the subject of organ donation and distribute over seven million organ donation cards. The ABDA was supported by the German Organ Transplantation Foundation (DSO) in the implementation of the campaign.

Filling out organ donation cards relieves relatives. The Federal Association of German Pharmacists' Associations stated that the pharmacy teams, as important contacts for all health issues on site, are particularly concerned about the "life-saving immediate measures" of organ donation. The participating pharmacies want to use posters and leaflets to sensitize their customers to this important topic in order to further increase the willingness of the population to donate organs in the future. Not least with the argument that "it is (three times more likely) to need an organ yourself than to become an organ donor". The ABDA also pointed out that every organ donor "can give up to seven people a new life after their death". So that the relatives do not have to decide on a possible organ removal, it is advisable to fill out an organ donation card if the organ donor is willing, which clearly documents the will and relieves the relatives, explained the Federal Association of German Pharmacists' Associations.
