Customizable Prescription Pad/Letterhead Templates for Pharmacists

Who is a pharmacist?

Unlike a regular doctor, a pharmacist is a person at a pharmacy, who provides medicines to people on demand. A pharmacist in reality is a healthcare professional who is also known as the Doctor of Pharmacy. In order to pass the doctor of pharmacy degree (PharmD), you are required to get an education for about six to eight years. This is when a qualified pharmacist is ready to get into practical work.

What duties are performed by a pharmacist?

 A pharmacist has been trained to make rules and keep a check on the storage, provision, handling, preparation, and out-supply of medicines. Their responsibility is to provide the right, detailed information to patients regarding the medicine. One of the most critical things they need to do is to “cross-check and verify” that the medicines prescribed to a specific patient are harmless and would not trigger a reaction inside the body. This is why people are highly dependent on their pharmacists besides their physicians.

Other more specific responsibilities include:

  • To supervise the prescription of medicine to the patients or prepare a prescription based on the recommendation by the physician
  • To ensure the quality medicines for prescription and supply
  • To inform the general public on how and when to take the prescribed medicines (what time is suitable for taking this medicine, what medicines cannot be consumed together, which foods to avoid after or before taking this dose, etc.)
  • To administer vaccines for specific diseases
  • To inform patients and physicians about newly introduced medicines and their effectiveness
  • To provide special care and services to patients with special conditions (such as the elderly, the weak, the addicts, pregnant and lactating women, people with severe diseases, and infants.)
  • To supervise the process of drug production, and supply in pharmaceutical companies
  • To provide basic health info to the public on topics such as Covid-19, stress management, medication management, improving quality of life, quitting bad habits, etc.

Where are we expected to find a pharmacist?

A pharmacist can be found in specialized pharmacies but in many countries, the common roadside pharmacies do not have a trained pharmacist in them. Usually, store men are dealing with medicines and provide them to people only based on their physician’s prescription. In other more developed countries hospitals, diagnostic pharmacies, and laboratory settings have a professional pharmacist to guide the patients.

Pharmacists are also found in particular settings where their duties are specific to that setting, for example, a doctor of pharmacy inside an oncology center would make sure the medicines prescribed are safe for the patient based on his/her condition. Other settings where pharmacists work include:

  • Drug rehab centers
  • Hospitals
  • Maternity clinics
  • Asylums and mental hospitals
  • Skin clinics
  • Community welfare centers
  • Community pharmacies
  • Old age homes
  • Pharmaceutical companies (for testing)
  • Medical schools
  • Military settings
  • Jails and detention centers, etc.
