In recent years, increased longevity of the Danish population has resulted in a growing segment with age-related and chronic health conditions. This, together with a general increase in the demand on the services of doctors, has augmented the role of pharmacies in the provision of healthcare services. In Denmark, a variety of pharmacy services has been developed, evaluated and implemented since the introduction of pharmaceutical care. The services are aimed at the person responsible for administering the medicine e.g. the patient themselves or care workers, thereby supporting medication safety. The services available have been developed, evaluated and implemented in collaboration between community pharmacies, the Danish Association of Pharmacies, the Danish College of Pharmacy Practice and international collaborators. In this commentary we present an overview of the available pharmacy service, the contents of each service, remuneration and the scientific evidence behind each service. The commentary covers: Inhaler Technique Assessment Service; New Medicines Service; Medication Review; and Medication Safety in Residential Facilities.
