Formatted Abstract/Summary
Chemists, druggists, and apothecaries historically were trades-people who performed similar tasks. Eventually, apothecaries split from the chemists and druggists to become general practitioners, while the other two groups combined to become pharmacists.1

Looking back at the development of pharmacy as a profession, we can see whence we came and where we are going may well be the same place. However, the question of what constitutes prescribing must first be answered in order to evaluate how pharmacists in a variety of practice situations can influence prescribing to improve patient outcomes. If pharmacists become prescribers, they will be subjected to the same influences as any other prescriber.

The processes of prescribing can be expanded from the basic process given by the World Health Organization (WHO).2
