Abstract

As the practice of pharmacy evolves, requiring more clinically oriented healthcare providers, Doctor of Pharmacy (PharmD) programs expand their training to more ospital sites to expose students to the provision of safe, effective, and economic drug therapy to patients. The need for this form of patient care becomes is essential in managing chronic illness like diabetes, hypertension, and other cardiovascular disorders. In all these conditions, the diseases are usually lifelong and with a number of co-morbidities, making polypharmacy part and parcel of the overall treatment strategy. The main objective is to maximize the clinical effects of medicines, i.e., using the most effective treatment for each type of patient: minimizing the risk of treatment-induced adverse events, i.e., monitoring the therapy course and the patient’s compliance with therapy trying to provide the best treatment alternative for the greatest number of patients.
