1. Role of community pharmacies and pharmacists in Japan's aging society.
In Japan's aging society, the environment surrounding pharmacies and pharmacists is drastically changing due to advances in medical care, and separation of dispensatory function from medical practice. These changes have led to various discussions regarding functional assignments of pharmacists and pharmacies. Research in our group is focused on role of pharmacies and pharmacists in providing pharmaceutical care and health support to community residents.
