Learning objectives

After the webinar, participants should be able:

  • Define self-care and associated terminology
  • Describe international trend in policy and practice in self-care



The aim is to discuss the role of pharmacists in self-care.

There appears to be great interest internationally and nationally in self-care. This renewed interest is primarily being driven by the pandemic and the impact of individual health behaviours, questions about the sustainability of the health care system and by evidence that suggests that when people manage their health it leads to more positive health outcomes. Community pharmacists are ideally placed, due to their accessibility, clinical knowledge and their competencies in promoting positive self-care practices.

Emeritus Professor S.I. (Charlie) Benrimoj BPharm (Hons) PhD FPS FRPSGB FFIP was the Foundation Professor of Pharmacy Practice (1991), Dean of the Faculty of Pharmacy (2000 to 2005), Pro-Vice Chancellor (Strategic Planning) (2006 to 2011) University of Sydney and Director and Head of Graduate School of Health at the University of Technology Sydney (2011- 2018).

Specific research programs include impact study and evaluation of clinical, economic and humanistic impacts of services and their implementation into usual practice. He has published over 240 papers in refereed journals, produced 47 major research reports and co-authored over 250 scientific conference presentations.
