Abstract: A poster presentation regarding evidence-based standards for clinical pharmacy practice. Introduction: Evidence-based medicine (EBM) is the practice of incorporating current data to clinical decision making. It involves the combination of the clinician’s ability and experience, together with the best clinical evidence obtained from research and studies. The clinical pharmacist has the potential of using science and skills, together with clinical experience and professional judgement to ensure the best outcome from medication therapy. Clinical pharmacy aids in delivering optimal therapy while minimising any risks associated with the administration of medicine. Aims: • To identify clinical pharmacy activities performed in a hospital scenario by clinical pharmacists. • To determine the significance of clinical pharmacists in ten medical specialisation areas with a focus on pharmacists’ intervention during medical rounds, pharmacist prescribing and medication risks. • To propose recommendations which could be applied to the local setting.
