The SACS/LEAFTM program was launched in 2013 by pharmacists, for pharmacists, to promote to promote simplified learning and improved patient care.
The acronym stands for :
e : evaluate
a : advise
f : follow up
In fact, the sequence of this acronym is a reflection of the pharmacy practice. SACS/LEAFTM is a unique format for communicating drug information that promotes the achievement of professional standards for pharmacists.
Pharmacological and clinical advancements require pharmacists to regularly update their knowledge and skills. However, information is often dispersed and not adapted to their actual practice, which can often make the task difficult. The pharmacist must therefore waste precious time trying to :
- Understand the theory,
- Evaluate patient records
- Counsel patients,
- Provide a quality follow-up
- And ultimately optimize patient care.
