Overview of Hospital and Clinical Pharmacy Pdf FreeHospital and clinical pharmacists are qualified to prepare medications for patients. They need to know how different medications interact so they can determine if a prescribed medication may cause harmful side effects for the patient. Clinical pharmacists spend more time interacting with patients and medical professionals.
