    • Overview

      This monograph considers the importance of the patient education role in the pharmacy profession, and the legal responsibility of the pharmacist for the failure to counsel patients. The monograph distinguishes between the non-recognition of a general duty to counsel on all possible adverse effects, and recognition of a specific legal duty to counsel when a pharmacist has special knowledge of a particular adverse effect. Legal case studies are used as pertinent examples.
