Topic Description
Earlier, pharmacists were discoverers of medications and their input in making medical preparations was a critical role for them and the health of the patients. With the institutionalization of medicine, they became “pill counters” and “labelers”. Rohan will share Rexanto’s vision to re-energize the pharmacist’s role as important caregiver in delivering health care. Currently, pharmacists counsel patients to take medications correctly and serve as gatekeepers to check for potential negative interactions of prescribed drugs. The future pharmacist is a greater contributor to healthcare, managing medication regiments, disease states, and serving as “feet on the street” for medical teams that collaborate with physicians.
