VILLAFAINA-BARROSO, Antonio et al. Pharmaceutical Care, Social Determinants of Health and Community: a new paradigm. Pharm Care Esp. [online]. 2023, vol.25, n.2, pp.50-64.  Epub Dec 25, 2023. ISSN 2794-1140.

This paper analyzes the limitations of the current conceptualization of Pharmaceutical Care, reviewing the different community approaches focused on the Social Determinants of Health (SDH) and proposes an evolution towards Community Pharmaceutical Care, defined as i) active participation of the pharmacy in assisting its community through mapping, coordination and referral to other resources and professionals inside and outside the health system, ii) the health diagnosis of its neighborhood and iii) the catalysation of community processes in order to achieve results that improve the quality of life of the patient and its community. In this way, the authors propose a new paradigm of the Pharmacy as a catalyst for the Community Health.

Keywords : Pharmaceutical Care; Social Determinants of Health; Community approach.
