[e-drug] Impact of pharmacists on treating hypertension [2]

E-DRUG:  Impact of pharmacists on treating hypertension [2]
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

In response to the remarks of Richard Laing: This is the usual pattern. In most 
countries approx. 50% of suggestions by pharmacists to doctors to  improve 
pharmacotherapy is not being acted upon. I can imagine that there are reasons 
for a doctor to not follow guidelines, but it would be polite to answer and 
give the reason why the drug-related problem cannot be solved in view of 
patient related circumstances.

Perhaps a good intention for 2015? Happy new year!
