Pharmacy is the branch of science that links the health science with the chemical science, and it is well concerned with the discovery, development, production, and distribution of drugs. Pharmacists are the medication experts on the health care team, offering information and advice to help patients successfully manage their medication therapy with minimum side effects. Pharmacists have the knowl¬edge, skills and expertise to be trusted with a patient's health. Pharmacists are among the most accessible health care professionals.
