Pharmacist in Healthcare Profession

A. K. Mohiuddin

Abstract


The current philosophy or approach to professional practice in pharmacy is designated as pharmaceutical care. This concept holds that the important role of the pharmacist is “the responsible. provision of drug therapy for the purpose of achieving definite outcomes that improve a patient’s quality of life.” Pharmacists, then, are those who are educated and licensed to dispense drugs and to provide drug information (DI)—they are experts on medications. They are the most accessible member of today’s healthcare team, and often are the first source of assistance and advice on many common ailments and healthcare matters.

 

Keywords: drug information (DI), sexually transmitted infections (STIs), over the counter (OTC), health management organizations (HMOs), patient compliance
