Abstract Pharmacists have much to offer in caring for patients with an advanced illness. To celebrate the role of pharmacists in palliative care, we wanted to share 50 excellent reasons to love your pharmacist. This list was compiled by 3 pharmacists specializing in end-of-life care spanning from inpatient palliative care to home-based hospice. Our goal is to increase awareness among other hospice and palliative care practitioners by recognizing the skills pharmacists contribute in caring for patients at the end of life. We divided the list into categories: provision of pharmaceuticals, optimizing medication regimens, education and drug information, patient safety, and administration/formulary management.
