oa SA Pharmaceutical Journal - Linguistic ability of pharmacists in patient counselling : practice matters

 

Abstract

The Constitution of the Republic of South Africa (Act 108, 1996) upholds access to healthcare services as a basic human right, further reinforced by the Patients' Rights Charter which endorses patient counselling and information in a language that the patient is able to understand. Effective patient counselling and proper communication between patient and health practitioner are paramount in achieving positive therapeutic outcomes.
