Nutrition Support - The role of the pharmacist

Nutrition Support - The role of the pharmacist

There are a wide range of opportunities for pharmacists to be involved in nutrition support. Take a holistic approach. Work in collaboration with the dietitian/nutrition team. Consider the impact on medication. Dose the route, formulation or dosing schedule need to change? It is a key area for non medical prescribing and working in a multidisciplinary team.
