Research output: Contribution to journalLiterature reviewpeer-review


Although there is evidence that collaboration between doctors and pharmacists results in the more cost-effective use of medicines, the input of pharmacists into the prescribing process remains informal and largely retrospective. This article discusses the current problems associated with the prescribing process and suggests a framework to formalise the input of pharmacists.
