Special Issue "Pharmacist Contraception Services"
A special issue of Pharmacy (ISSN 2226-4787).
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 30 June 2020.
Interests: role of pharmacists and pharmacies in family planning care, public health and advanced pharmacist practice
The role of pharmacists and pharmacies in the delivery of contraception care and related services is rapidly expanding. There have been challenges to realizing the full reach and impact of these services.
We invite you to share your views and research by submitting a manuscript to the “Pharmacist Contraception Services” Special Issue in the journal Pharmacy—an open-access journal with a focus on pharmacy education and practice.
For this Special Issue, we seek manuscripts including, but not limited to the following topics related to pharmacist contraception services: (1) training and education, (2) implementation, (3) payment for services, (4) clinical outcomes, (5) public awareness, and (6) policy. We seek manuscripts of all types including: (1) reviews, (2) commentaries, (3) idea papers, (4) case studies, (5) demonstration studies, and (6) research studies.
If the Special Issue publishes more than 10 papers, the publisher will print a book edition that would be made available, both in digital format for free and in paperback format available by order.
I hope this Special Issue will inspire pharmacists, policymakers, advocates, and researchers to consider adopting best practices and addressing the remaining challenges to realize the full potential of pharmacist contraception services in serving our communities.
Please feel free to contact me with any ideas or questions. I look forward to your submissions.
Dr. Sally Rafie
