Mr. Dixon You raised a very important issue. We must gain the trust of the society by being capable of serving them through our knowledge and skills. This high level of knowledge and skills must be imparted to Pharm. D. students. I was told that, in USA, clinical pharmacists play an active role in deciding on treatment. It seems, in critical care teams, pharmacist will also be there , and he will advise on what treatment is to be given to a patient. To reach such a level, a pharmacist must be equipped with excellent level of knowledge. Hope you agree with me. Vijaya Ratna

In addition to having excellent Pharmacotherapy knowledge, Clinical Pharmacists also need excellent communication skills to be able to effectively communicate with physicians to convince them. They also need superb communication skills to effectively communicate with the patients. There are number of good books available on this aspect that give essence of communication skills that the Clinical Pharmacists must acquire in addition to excellent knowledge of Pharmacotherapy.
