Course Description

Pharmacists are an integral member of the healthcare team and play an essential role in delivering quality patient care. Pharmacists have expert knowledge about how drugs interact with the human body and how they can be used safely for therapeutic purposes. They use this knowledge to advise and counsel patients and other healthcare professionals on the correct use and side effects of prescribed medication. Pharmacists are often the first health professionals contacted for advice on medication and play a major role as healthcare providers and educators to the community. More than ever, pharmacists are contributing to improved health care through their growing scope of services.
