Patient treatment outcome is still not achieving the standard Aims; This study conducted to evaluate the impact of Home Medication Review (HMR) by pharmacist toward improvement of patient medication compliance as well as medication knowledge.

    Minyak burung unta mengandungi Omega 3, Omega 6 dan Omega 9. Kulit yang kering menyukai asid-asid lemak (fatty acids) yang penting ini. Campuran minyak burung unta dengan lain-lain minyak yang sebenar, butter dan ekstrak herba menghasilkan kesan-kesan yang menakjubkan.

    Minyak burung unta adalah non-comedogenic (bukan bahan berlemak yang boleh menyebabkan jeragat), atau dengan kata lain, mudah diserap oleh liang roma (clog pores).

    Minyak burung unta telah lama digunakan untuk mengubati arthritis, radang, perit dan sakit otot, dermatitis, kulit kering, rambut kering, sakit urat akibat terlalu lama berbaring dan lain-lain penyakit ringan oleh orang Mesir purba, Rom purba dan orang-orang Afrika.
