BARREDA HERNANDEZ, Dolores; MULET ALBEROLA, Ana; GONZALEZ BERMEJO, Diana  y  SOLER COMPANY, Enrique. The reason for having a code of pharmaceutical ethics: Spanish Pharmacists Code of Ethics. Farm Hosp. [online]. 2017, vol.41, n.3, pp.401-409. ISSN 2171-8695.

The pharmacist profession needs its own code of conduct set out in writing to serve as a stimulus to pharmacists in their day-to-day work in the different areas of pharmacy, in conjunction always with each individual pharmacist´s personal commitment to their patients, to other healthcare professionals and to society.

An overview is provided of the different codes of ethics for pharmacists on the national and international scale, the most up-to-date code for 2015 being presented as a set of principles which must guide a pharmacutical conduct from the stand­ point of deliberative judgment.

The difference between codes of ethics and codes of practice is discussed. In the era of massive-scale collaboration, this code is a project holding bright prospects for the future. Each individual pharmacutical attitude in practicing their profession must be identified with the pursuit of excellence in their own personal practice for the purpose of achieving the ethical and professional values above and beyond complying with regulations and code of practice.

Palabras clave : Code of ethics; Pharmacy.
