    Abstract

    This article describes the skills required to obtain and communicate information during discussions with patients about medications. It includes medication history-taking, shared decision-making, giving information about a new medicine, helping patients move between primary and secondary care settings and supporting adherence with medications. All these processes require good communication skills integrated with an understanding of the relevant clinical pharmacology.
