Abstract: A poster presentation regarding the classification of herbal medicines: what is safe for the patient. Introduction: The use of herbal medicines is increasing. One of the possible reasons for the increase in use of herbal medicines may be due to the misconception that herbal medicines are ‘natural’ and hence safe. Aims: • To analyse how Herbal Medicinal Products (HMPs) are classified within the European Union (EU) and determine whether such a classification safeguards the interests of the patient, • To assess the level of knowledge of pharmacists and health shop employees, • To identify attitudes and perception of patients in a local community pharmacy setting towards HMPs.
