The role of the community pharmacist is changing from direct dispensing to a more clinical focus as a vital link in the chain of patient care. Coordinated care systems such as accountable care organizations (ACOs) and the medical home are an unprecedented opportunity for pharmacists to advance the transition.

In this webinar, pharmacists will learn the critical steps in comprehensive medication management and the importance of the community pharmacist as a valued provider of clinical pharmaceutical care by linking medications and their use directly to clinical goals of therapy.

Learning Objectives: Participants will be able to
    • Discuss delivery system changes envisioned in coordinated care systems such as medical homes and integrated care networks, and the team-based approach to care, and the opportunity presented for comprehensive medication management in them;
    • Summarize the changing role of the community pharmacist from medication dispensing to direct clinical practice;
    • Review the 10 critical steps in comprehensive medication management and how these relate directly to the discovery and resolution of drug therapy problems in clinical pharmaceutical care; and
    • Explain the importance of becoming a true and valued provider of clinical pharmaceutical care as a member of the medical home or integrated care network team by linking medications and their use directly to clinical goals of therapy.
