Pharmacy has been shown to be one of the most diverse professions in the health care industry. Pharmacists can choose employment in any one of the four main sectors including community pharmacy, hospital pharmacy, industrial pharmacy and academia.
Pharmacists in the community setting are responsible for supervising the dispensing of medication, advising patients on treatment options for minor ailments, counselling patients with regard to their medication and their health, performing basic clinical tests such as blood glucose monitoring and blood pressure testing, providing health information to the community as well as many other functions.
Hospital pharmacists are required in both the public and private sectors where they are an integral member of the health care team. Pharmacists in hospitals dispense medication to both in- and out-patients, provide clinical information to other health care professionals, are actively involved in stock control and management, assess patient therapy as well as many other duties.
