Community pharmacy is uniquely positioned and well-equipped to improve medication use and quality in healthcare, but the full potential and opportunity in this space has been largely unrealized. Join us to learn more about an exemplary model in community pharmacy that has advanced chronic care for patients by optimizing medication use to reduce downstream healthcare costs. Topics covered will include chronic care management, quality metrics, and more.
At the completion of this activity, the participant will be able to:
- Describe opportunities for community pharmacy to improve chronic care for patients by optimizing medication use.
- Discuss lessons learned from the collaborative “COMM” model, which produced a successful reduction in downstream costs through improved medication management.
- Identify strategies to implement pharmacy practice changes to improve healthcare quality for patients.
Participation in the full session, including question and answer period are required for credit. One contact hour (0.1 CEU) of continuing pharmacy education (CPE) credit will be awarded for the activity. This is a knowledge-based activity. Following the live session, visit the NACDS Education website to claim credit.
