The pharmacist has an obligation to ensure that they dispense accurate drugs as well as providing advice regarding side effects or interactions with other medicines; failure to do so could lead to serious consequences for both them and the patient.
For the patient, their rights must be respected throughout this process – meaning they should be fully informed about any medications they take as well as being given suitable alternatives where possible. Finally, families should also be kept up-to-date with any developments regarding treatment options or potential risks associated with certain medicines so everyone can make decisions together.
In conclusion it is clear that there are numerous ethical and legal considerations when dealing with medication issues – by ensuring all stakeholders remain aware these issues can hopefully be avoided before becoming major problems.
