ESCOBAR, Leslie  and  REPRESENTACION DEL GRUPO CRISOL* et al. Consensus about the duties of pharmacists in intensive care units in Chile. Rev. méd. Chile [online]. 2018, vol.146, n.12, pp.1452-1458. ISSN 0034-9887.

In 2015, the directors of the Clinical Pharmacists Division of the Chilean Society of Intensive Care Medicine (SOCHIMI) organized a collaborative work along the country to define the minimum activities and duties that a pharmacist should perform in an Intensive Care Unit in Chile, according to the Ministry of Health and SOCHIMI guidelines and recommendations. This document summarizes the agreements on three priority areas of pharmacists’ duties in intensive care: a) pharmacotherapy follow-up; b) pharmacological surveillance and security management of medications, and c) data recording and documentation. The recommendations collect the experiences from Chilean pharmacists along the country and provide information and support for future consensus for other specialties.
