    Breaking down language barriers in Pharmacy.
    In episode 21 of our RPS Pharma Scene podcast, Ghalib Khan tells us about his innovative pharmacy software, Written Medicine, which helps to break down language barriers between pharmacists and patients. 
    Ghalib set up Written Medicine because he believes it is crucial to improve the quality of the information provided to patients from ethnic minorities whose second language is English.
    He speaks to Parastou Donyai, RPS Chief Scientist, of his own struggles to be understood and how this inspired him to create and promote the software.
    If you are concerned that your patients struggle to understand how to correctly use and make the most of their medicines, then listen to Ghalib's story!

    See the nine "classic" ads discussed in this episode.

    The future of pharmacy?

    Stephen and Santosh are both involved in pharmacy's.adoption of new technologies and operating models, so this is a fascinating listen for anyone interested in digital pharmacy.
