Sir,
Which all hospitals provide a chance to work as a clinical pharmacist in India
Well initially to start with you can apply to any hospital which is NABH or JCI accredited or is in process of accreditation.

Now a days most of the corporate hospitals are entertaining clinical pharmacists.
Surely, you need to prove yourself to gain trust.

Sir,
Other than patient orientated care, what are the other roles of a clinical pharmacist??
Other than direct patient care, you are expected to manage the Medication related policies throughout hospital like
1) Maintenance of Drug formulary
2) Maintenance of ward stocks (including ED and Ambulance)
3) Crash cart management throughout hospital (including all high risk areas)
4) Narcotics usage and issue verification
5) Conduct CMEs for nursing and doctors relating to new therapies and hospital policies on medication (Verbal orders, high risk medication verification, LASA management etc...)
6) You can also opt for becoming quality representative / executive by gaining some training
7) Coordinate with HIC team to develop Antibiotic policies
8) Conduct Clinical audits ...
These are few enlisted, you can explore more and more as you gain experience.

As clinical pharmacy is in it's budding state in India we are adopting Western practice and guidelines and I am sure that we will succeed in following their working pattern in near future . But are we ready to manage the patients in future without implementing their process of Electronic prescription or automated prescription auditing mechanism ?
I think clinical pharmacist should initiate and educate the doctor's regarding the advantage of Computer aided prescription order entry and automated prescription review process

Open for discussion to all

I agree with you Dr.Priya@priya.k-nair, In our Government Hospital , Ooty we have electronic prescription system. Really its helpful in avoiding duplication and other errors which are related to prescriptions. Its really useful but dispensing and administration errors are the challenges. What set of SOPs you follow when dispensing drugs to patients?
