    7 best practices for pharmacists

    Pharmacy has changed and will continue to change. This evolution has been fueled by advances in clinical practice, innovations in technology, and expansion of the technician role, enabling pharmacists to play an increasingly powerful role in patient care.

    An important prerequisite for continued development and success of the profession is the establishment and maintenance of a high standard of excellence in individual practice. Seven essential elements, if adopted, will aid the profession in achieving this distinction. They include:

    ·      Development of a leadership philosophy that focuses on others

    ·      Effective management of oneself as well as others

    ·      Embrace of change and support of progress

    ·      Promotion of a professional image

    ·      Continuous development of skills and knowledge

    ·      Disciplined professional practice

    ·      Effective communication
