Abstract : 

The provision of professional pharmacy services from the Community Pharmacy (SPFA) to the patient must be carried out in accordance with a series of prior health and legal guarantees that ensure the patient’s rights. Information, decision-making autonomy, privacy and consent are basic elements to be considered by the community pharmacist prior to the provision of the SPFA. The co-knowledge of these guarantees’ conditions the pharmacist’s clinical relationship with the patient, strengthens the provision of SPFA in the community pharmacy and gives legal certainty to the professional performance of the pharmacist. This article analyses the legal obligations regarding the different types of consents required in pharmaceutical practice, as well as the information that needs to be provided to patients and the implications related to current regulations on the protection of personal data.
