A pharmacist is one of few medical professionals in the world to whom a patient or anyone else can go for a consultation or advice without an appointment. They are easily accessed and knowledgeable about a myriad of aspects concerning patients and their medication. It is thus of the utmost importance to take these skills into consideration when it comes to diabetic education. Pharmacists have long-term relationships with most of their chronic patients, which sets a good foundation for mutual trust and respect and better patient compliance.
