Welcome to the December edition of i2P-Information to Pharmacists.
As we wind down in 2013 for the holiday period we will be filing some updates, but at a little more leisurely pace.
Where has the year gone?
Certainly the rate of change for 2013 has been more than hectic and there has been little time to organise thoughts and set appropriate directions.
This is the season for hard negotiations for the 6CPA but there is little left to squeeze.
Pharmacy has had the equivalent of bariatric surgery.
Government has taken it all, as usual.
As current price changes work their way through the pharmacy cash flow cycle, for some there will be insufficient- and heartburn.
Crunch time is that there will be more bankruptcies over 2014.
Media reports that some pharmacies have received free shop refits as a form of payment for purchasing a specific generic drug range is certainly not obvious, as the average pharmacy is in need of some renovation or repair and looking a bit jaded.

The following is a list of suggestions to help you get the most out of the i2P resources on site.
Do not hesitate to communicate with us if you have any enquiry or a suggestion for us to produce a better product.
* Forward your initial email summary received to a range of your colleagues who would be interested in reading i2P E-Magazine.
* Once you are on the site, please use the "Send to a friend" link to pass on valuable information to colleagues and friends.
* Always check that your email filters are set to be "friendly" for i2P deliveries.
Even if you are receiving i2P without problem, still set your filters, because Internet providers can change filter settings or ban specific fileservers if they are unfortunate enough to host a totally unrelated publication that may have been placed on someone's banned list.
If you are having difficulties, please let us know and we will assist you.
* Get adventurous and use new technology in the form of an RSS reader and continually access i2P through importing the RSS link on the home page of the i2P website. If you don't have an RSS reader, get one free at: http://www.feedreader.com/download

* Encourage colleagues to subscribe online at the i2P home page subscription panel.

* Our archives are open for use as a reference source.
There is an enormous range of contemporary pharmacy content available for students, researchers or business planners.
