The professional roles of pharmacists are continually evolving. The World Health Organization (WHO) concept of the 8-Star Pharmacist lends itself to a broad and holistic approach to pharmacy education and practice. It envisions pharmacists as caregivers, decision-makers, communicators, managers, lifelong learners, teachers, leaders and researchers. It's used as a framework for developing scope of practice and expertise as a clinical pharmacy practitioner.
