Communication skills are widely recognized as critical for business professionals. Our work and our lives do not simply happen; they occur because of our interactions with people. Whether we write, talk or listen, the way we do our work is influenced by our communication with others and by work itself. Some people may assume that communication is easy and that studying the concept is a waste of time. After all, if we can read and write, it means we can communicate. Communication is more than just reading and writing. It is about choosing the right message, about the presentation and about the context. It is also about knowing when to be assertive and persuasive at the right times. Communications skills are the bridge between pharmacists and the patient. Health communication can contribute to all aspects of diseases prevention and health promotion. To become successful pharmacists, you need to have excellent communication skills to serve customers. Pharmacy students are taught the importance of communication skills throughout their training. When students visualize a career as a pharmacist, it is easy to see why communication is important: if pharmacists advise patients at a retail pharmacy; work with other health professionals in a hospital or present a business plan in a hospital, it is important to effectively share message with others. But there is another equally important form of communication for pharmacy students which is ‘writing’. While writing may less popular than math and science among people who often pursue a career in pharmacy, it is an essential skill for success in any field of pharmacy. It is crucial that pharmacy schools focus on developing writing skills when they grow future pharmacists.
