 The pharmacist's role in home care is increasingly important. We are required to collaborate with multiple other professions. As home care pharmaceutical managers, pharmacists verify the timeline of side effects and the onset of expected effects. It is also important to verify all prescriptions from the pharmaceutical viewpoint, and to point out potential negative interactions or consequences of each prescribed medication, suggesting changes or dosage reduction in drugs as appropriate. Additionally, we verify the cause of unused drugs (i.e. patient non-compliance) and take action. As an effort to provide quality home care, pharmacists share information with other professions for collaborative management of a patient's needs. We act as a bridge between related government, agencies and citizens, assisting in creating a healthy lifestyle for the residents of our community. The days when pharmacists just sit in their pharmacies and dispense drugs are gone. Therefore, we need to collaborate more with medical, nursing care, and governmental professionals in our communities.
