Pharmaceutical Care is defined as “the responsible provision of drug therapy for the purpose of achieving definite outcomes that improve a patient’s quality of life”. One of the fundamental concepts in understanding needs for pharmaceutical care are Drug-Related Problems (DRPs).

As the complexity of medication treatment increases, identification of drug-related problems (DRPs) by healthcare professionals remains vital to patient safety and Quality Use of Medicines(QUM). DRPs have been used by many researchers to evaluate the QUM in different settings. DRPs present, however, a list of potential problems not a strategic framework for assessing a medication regimen.

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.

Citations counts from the Google Scholar™ indexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
