oa Central African Journal of Medicine - Survey of the clinical orientation of retail pharmacists in Zimbabwe

Volume 31, Issue 7
  • ISSN : 0008-9176



A previous report indicated that the general public are very much in favour of extension of clinical services by pharmacy in Zimbabwe. As such changes would be fairly expensive to set up and time consuming to operate it was decided to ascertain whether the pharmacists themselves were in favour of the changes and if they would be prepared to offer the desired services. In conclusion it can be seen that the situation is favourable for an extension of clinical pharmacy services in Zimbabwe to providing consulting and monitoring facilities. An educational campaign would be required to co-ordinate the schemes and persuade pharmacists to institute them. This should not be difficult as most pharmacists are favourably disposed towards change.
