How to be a good person
Pharmacists encounter morally sound and morally questionable people, patients or clients on a regular basis. By the same token, pharmacists are measured against the very same criteria defining our morality in turn. Despite the people we deal with, I am convinced that most pharmacists aspire to be morally supportive. As ethical professionals, we expect of ourselves and our peers to possess the innate ability to distinguish between good or bad, or rather being good or being bad. Although this basic value system is finely woven into society, despite our cultural frame of reference, it can be somewhat of a challenge to recognise what defines a good person and how to actively steer towards being a good person.
