ANGONESI, Daniela and SEVALHO, Gil. Pharmaceutical Care: conceptual and critical basis to a Brazilian model. Ciênc. saúde coletiva [online]. 2010, vol.15, suppl.3, pp. 3603-3614. ISSN 1413-8123. http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S1413-81232010000900035.
The Pharmaceutical Care concepts were analyzed from their origins in the United States and the later contributions which came from Spain and from the effort of sistematization by the World Health Organization to understand the processs that has been happening in Brasil. After the abandon of the communitarian pharmacy, the Brazilian pharmacists hope that this new model of practicing is the way to get back his/her social role. The philosophy which directs the Pharmaceutical Care, having the focus on patient, in our understanding, must support philosophical and conceptually the rebuilding of pharmaceutical practicing in Brazil in order to get back the lost relation between the pharmacist and patient at communitarian pharmacy.
