Community pharmacists, hospital pharmacists and pharmacists serving long-term care communities all play important roles in the care of patients, but because you don’t always see them, you may not know how they’re making sure you get the right drug, at the right time, in the right dose. From helping you manage your medications and counselling you on health conditions, to offering flu shots and working with other members of your healthcare team, the role of the pharmacist is so much more than just dispensing. Pharmacist Billy Cheung looks at the different roles pharmacists play in community, hospital and long-term care practice, and how they work together to support your health.
