Traditional Chinese Medicines and Clinical Pharmaceutical Care
“Clinical pharmaceutical care in Traditional Chinese Medicines” can encompass services including dispensing, dispensing related cognitive service, and patient care. Providing pharmaceutical care is an important part of a pharmacist’s work through which a pharmacist applies his professional knowledge to evaluate the appropriateness of drug therapy, safeguard patient safety and ensure optimal drug treatment. However, in the realm of Traditional Chinese Medicine, few pharmacists practice the clinical pharmaceutical care in whole. The purpose of this study is to establish a comprehensive pharmaceutical care model in Traditional Chinese Medicine through which pharmacists can practice pharmaceutical care encompassing both Traditional Chinese Medicine and western medicine, improve patient adherence to drug therapy, minimize possible adverse drug reactions, and subsequently improve the overall quality of medical care.
