Introduction to pharmacist clinics


Last session, we have gone through various examples of clinical pharmacy services (CPS). We welcome Ju-Chieh Wung, a clinical pharmacist working at TVGH as our educator this week. She will introduce the ins and outs of pharmacist clinics.

There are three core concepts you have to know before you build up pharmacist clinics. One is to keep medication in advance with time. If you have the chance to set up a pharmacy clinic, the first thing you have to do is try to keep up with the most updated medication situation. The second is localized pharmacy clinics. Literature research would help you find success models. You would need to think globally and act locally. Customizing pharmacist clinics to fit in the local culture is required. The final core concept is to develop and run your pharmacist clinic.

Setting up pharmacy clinics is a 3-step process consisting of needs assessment, set-up, and assessment. We will go through each step one by one.

There are several models for pharmacy clinics: one drug model, one class of drug model, one health condition model, numerous conditions model, and electronic communications model and etc. We will give examples to explain each model.
