Abstract

Community pharmacists encounter a range of hurdles in providing pharmaceutical treatment, including clinical, ethical, and legal issues, which are the major roadblocks in health care delivery. As a result, there is a significant disparity between the pharmaceutical services currently offered and the gold-standard quality of pharmaceutical care [1]. Some research studies have been conducted in Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) and Arab nations to identify the ethical challenges that community pharmacists encounter in their daily operations. To improve the quality of pharmaceutical care, it is necessary to identify the ethical issues pharmacists encounter, their causes, and the methods by which they can be resolved. Ethical challenges can differ by culture, and approaches to addressing them differ by country.
