Gone are the days when the pharmacist could spend their whole day dispensing prescriptions in the back of the pharmacy with very little patient interaction. Pharmacists today deliver an abundance of services, and play a wide role in primary care, in relation to public health, medication adherence and optimisation, disease prevention, and patient education and counselling. This Special Issue seeks to identify the pharmacists and public perceptions about the advanced role of pharmacists. It also aspires to highlight the evidence and the impact of such a role and the services offered, and identify other services or good practices within community pharmacies and other primary care sectors. It also wants to establish the utilisation and impact of digital solutions in the role of pharmacists. The issue also aims to highlight the barriers/facilitators and challenges for the extended role of community pharmacists and the future vision for the role and how it fits with national and international health priorities. Finally, it aims to provide evidence for the role of pharmacists in research, public health, disease prevention, and long-term disease management.
