The direct involvement of pharmacists in patient care (clinical pharmacy services) is a key intervention to optimize the outcomes of medicine therapy, thereby improving the quality of patient care. The Pharmaceuticals Fund and Supply Agency (PFSA) has been collaborating in efforts to implement clinical pharmacy services in the Ethiopian health care system. As part of the efforts, the preparation of a guiding document to standardize clinical pharmacy services provided by health facilities was determined to be necessary.
This is the first edition of the Standard Operating Procedures Manual for the Provision of Clinical Pharmacy Services in Ethiopia. This manual will contribute greatly to the standardization of the provision of clinical pharmacy services in the country.
