patients’ quality of life. It optimizes patients’ health-related quality of

treatment outcomes and actualization of clinicians’ treatment goals and

position given to them in the entire care process. It recognizes the
sovereignty of the patient and the critical roles they play and the
strategic position they occupy in the health care value chain. All the
activities and responsibilities taken by the pharmacist in carrying out
pharmaceutical care is predominantly patient centered, patients utility
and outcome targeted, in collaboration with other health care givers but
