  • consultation with physcians regarding complex care patients on multiple medications
  • patient counselling regarding new medication or medication issues
  • individual patient assessment to identify, prevent and resolve drug-related problems
  • providing continuity of care with patients upon discharge from the hospital and ongoing liaison with hospital and community pharmacists

The clinical pharmacist may also offer specific programs and services such as:

  • mulitple-medication use reviews
