Objective To analyze and discuss the current research status,hotspots,frontiers,and progress in work practice of family pharmacists both in domestic and abroad by Citespace. Methods The database of Web of Science Core Collection and CNKI were selected for data extraction.They searched for literature from the database from establishment to April 1, 2023 using the topic words “family pharmacist” and “home pharmaceutical care” both in Chinese and English. The network diagrams of essential nodes such as authors,countries,institutions,and key words were analyzed and drawn Results A total of 439 Chinese and 572 English literatures were included in the study.Scholars such as Mei Shen,Shihui Bao,Zhongzhuang Wang,Hughes Carmel M,Jamieson Hamish A,and Chen Timothy F have significantly contributed.The UK and the United States were leading countries in family pharmacists. Most of China's top ten research institutions were from Shanghai, Beijing. The top five Chinese literature keywords were pharmaceutical care, community, pharmacist, rational drug use, family pharmacist. The top five English literature keywords were pharmaceutical care, care,management, older people, and impact. Conclusions According to keyword clustering and burst analysis,research hotspots in foreign countries mainly focus on pharmaceutical services,adverse drug reactions,adherence,etc.,which is consistent with the development direction of pharmaceutical services in China.However,domestic pharmacy's development and literature publication are slightly behind those of foreign countries,and there is still some development space for pharmaceutical services in China.
