To systematize the information available on the teaching of pharmaceutical care, at the undergraduate and postgraduate level, in Latin America describing the current situation, perspectives, challenges, and recommendations. A structured review of works related to the teaching of  pharmaceutical care in Latin America was made in PubMed, Scopus, Scielo, and Google Scholar, without time limit. Additionally, an internet  search of study plans of the different pharmacy programs in this region and  the accreditation status was performed. Thirty-six publications on the teaching of pharmaceutical care were  identified. In addition, information from 146 pharmacy study plans with  predominance of the active teaching methodology; so 25 postgraduate studies in the healthcare area was obtained. The percentage of  accredited programs was 31.8% and 37.7% for graduate and postgraduate programs, respectively. Brazil was recognized by the use of simulation, information, and communication technologies, and addition by  frequency of the blended education; while Colombia by the incorporation of  early practices at the healthcare level. The information available in publications and study plans demonstrates a growing interest in the teaching of pharmaceutical care  in Latin America. However, it is necessary that universities perform  integrated work with health institutions, in pro to get the accreditation of  their services for teaching. Likewise, harmonize concepts and early practices  that help to optimize teaching and promote the results divulgation obtained.

Attention Score in Context

This research output has an Altmetric Attention Score of 1. This is our high-level measure of the quality and quantity of online attention that it has received. This Attention Score, as well as the ranking and number of research outputs shown below, was calculated when the research output was last mentioned on 16 July 2021.
All research outputs
of 18,666,194 outputs
Outputs from Farmacia Hospitalaria
of 82 outputs
Outputs of similar age
of 286,992 outputs
Outputs of similar age from Farmacia Hospitalaria
of 1 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 18,666,194 research outputs across all sources so far. This one is in the 23rd percentile – i.e., 23% of other outputs scored the same or lower than it.
So far Altmetric has tracked 82 research outputs from this source. They receive a mean Attention Score of 1.9. This one is in the 41st percentile – i.e., 41% of its peers scored the same or lower than it.
Older research outputs will score higher simply because they've had more time to accumulate mentions. To account for age we can compare this Altmetric Attention Score to the 286,992 tracked outputs that were published within six weeks on either side of this one in any source. This one is in the 35th percentile – i.e., 35% of its contemporaries scored the same or lower than it.
We're also able to compare this research output to 1 others from the same source and published within six weeks on either side of this one. This one has scored higher than all of them
