The philosophy of patient care is a wide and complicated topic of literature. That is elaborated by different health institution to harmonize their local clinical activities. Undoubtedly, that is working successfully to satisfy patients, fulfill the requirement of clinicians and cover maximum mutual benefits within officially allocated budget. However, patient care has different comprehension in different demographic and socio-political setting. But, in general, the meaning, understanding and composition of clinical and pharmaceutical patient care may be same all over world. The pharmacists, clinicians and administration adopt, exercise and emphasize on certain parts depending upon the type of challenges, kind of patients and available health care facilities. Thus, the health care is an emerging field that always remained under consideration. The local and international experts like to work, contribute and improve it to enhance the public health. Even some time judiciary, parliament and local intelligentsia focus and emphasize to address some particular health related problems. So, we may need to elaborate the comprehension to satisfy the literature and logical need of health and medicine including identification of problems, designing treatment protocol and handling the complication of therapy. That may potentially improve the overall outcomes and maximize the patient’s benefit. After twenty five years the definition of pharmaceutical care is still unsatisfactory. The confusion remained about what this term comprises and how to distinguish it from other terms. The board of the Pharmaceutical Care Network Europe (PCNE) felt essential to rephrase pharmaceutical care and to answer the question: "What is Pharmaceutical Care ". The patient care is not perfectly incorporated into the health care system in most part of the world. However, pharmacy practice has shown positive attitudes toward patient care provision. Thus, an advanced working should focus to improve the understanding the concept of patient care and overcome barriers.
