FIP Webinar in collaboration with the Community Pharmacy Section on Patient Counselling
Medicine users have been recognized as active partners in communication with whom pharmacists are expected to establish a professional relationship based on trust, open communication and mutual decision-making. This has challenged pharmacists to evaluate their communication skills, learn new techniques and reconfigure their service provision to meet the requirement of concordance and patient autonomy. The pharmacist should also have an understanding of his or her role in the collaborative team supporting the medicine user, and the flow of information to the patient from different sources with more and more emphasis placed on electronic information.
1) List key concepts of patient counselling.
2) Describe various methods for counselling and how to adapt them to different patients’ needs.
3) Describe the unique needs and circumstances of providing patient counselling at community and hospital pharmacy settings.
