Abstract

The article discusses the peculiarities of pharmaceutical care in relation to the Covid-19 pandemic. A pharmaceutical care algorithm was developed and tested on people who displayed cold symptoms during the pandemic. 50 patients (with flu and cold symptoms) who visited the pharmacy were interviewed using the Pharmaceutical Care Algorithm. The results showed that 41 patients only had mild symptoms, while 9 out of 50 had probable symptoms of Covid 19. Patients were referred to the physicians for further examination. An appropriate pharmaceutical care plan was developed. The Covid-19 pandemic has further showcased a function of the pharmacist as a provider of appropriate care in a pharmacy facility. It showed us that a pharmacist has a vital role in preventing the pandemic, both by properly informing patients and by implementing an appropriate pharmaceutical care plan. In view of all the above, it is now vital to maintain an already developed algorithm and further update it based on how the pandemic progresses.
