Role of pharmacy professionals

Pharmacy professionals not specialising in renal medicine may feel their contributions to help renal transplant patients is very limited. However there are several areas in which pharmacy professionals can make a difference and help support these patients.

An important role of pharmacy professionals in all sectors of practice is to be able to provide patients with the information they are looking for, or signpost them to support elsewhere, so they can be informed of their choices and aware of their condition and treatments.
