Elevate Your Practice Site with Transitions of Care Services

Saturday, February 5, 2022 – 2:45-3:45 PM
 
Pharmacy teams are an integral component in the successful provision of care to patients transitioning to and from various settings. And while many pharmacy teams are currently conducting routine services for these patients, few pharmacies offer “official” transitions of care services in their community.  Join this session to learn the importance of team-based care, tips and resources to efficiently obtain and reconcile medication histories, and strategies to overcome obstacles preventing effective transitions of care interventions. Upon completion of this course, each learner will appreciate the value of collaboration, their individual contribution to the team, and opportunities for growth and expansion in transitions of care services.
