Abstract

The practice of community pharmacy has changed
dramatically. The primary activities of pharmacists have
traditionally been procuring, preparing and dispensing
medicines. In recent years, the emphasis has shifted to
patient care, and pharmacists now undertake a variety of
clinical roles, including patient counselling and education,
individual medication reviews, drug use evaluation, medication
compliance monitoring, prescribing error detection
and intervention and monitoring of therapeutic outcomes
(e.g. blood pressure, blood glucose level). The emerging
patient-focused roles for community pharmacists will
require improved access to clinical knowledge and appropriate
decision-support tools
