Abstract


Clinical pharmacists are in regular communication with patients and take part in making clinical interventions along with the countless technical tasks done behind the counter. Dispensing just a kit of medicine to the patient or their representative is not the only duty but also dispensing the right drug to the right person with right information. Clinical pharmacist has a major role in providing effective counseling being it a critical element in ensuring optimal therapeutic outcome. Pharmacist’s role is important in improving the patient understanding in the management of their medical condition. They help in reducing medication errors, minimizing incidents of adverse events and drug interactions and improving patient compliance. This article provides information on the attitude of patient towards counseling, barriers faced by pharmacists and the emerging trends in providing an effective patient counseling.
