An Interpreter has all of the skills of the reporter but in addition is consistently able to analyze and prioritize patient problems. They have ownership of explaining things. A Manager consistently proposes reasonable options incorporating patient preferences and has ownership of developing an action plan with the patient. An Educator has a consistent level of knowledge of current medical evidence and can critically apply knowledge to specific patients. They have ownership of evidence for action and sharing.
Community pharmacists are the health professionals most accessible to the public. They supply medicines in accordance with a prescription or, when legally permitted, sell them without a prescription. In addition to ensuring an accurate supply of appropriate products, their professional activities also cover counselling of patients at the time of dispensing of prescription and non-prescription drugs, drug information to health professionals, patients and the general public, and participation in health-promotion programmes. They maintain links with other health professionals in primary health care.
