Providing pharmaceutical care for minor health problems in the self medication area and guaranteeing the proper execution of pharmacotherapy in the area of prescribed medicines is an evolving tasks of community pharmacists in modern health care.
It requires knowledge on how drugs are taken by the patients and on what governs their behaviour.
Physicians can rely on the feedback by their patient and their own objective measurements of the success of therapy, such feedback is very insecure for a pharmacist.
He has to anticipate what will happen to drugs handed out.
He should know the difficulties his clients will encounter in actually going through with prescribed therapies and recognise indicators of proper use or abuse.
The lack of personal feedback has to be compensated by a good general knowledge of the situation and the problems in the patient s population.
This requires continuous research activities to which community pharmacists could in turn contribute already during their curriculum at the schools of pharmacy.
