To the Editor.—Although I read with interest the Consensus Statement by Dr Small and colleagues, I was concerned when I read the list of participants, which included a wide range of health care professionals but failed to include pharmacists. For patients to obtain the best medical care, all health care professionals must work together as a team. Since a pharmacist often is the only professional some patients see on a regular basis (eg, monthly), pharmacists can provide valuable information to other members of the health care team regarding drug-related, behavioral, and caregiver concerns.
