PharmTalk: Innovative Practices in Transitions of Care

Description

Whenever patients transition between care settings, the door is open for confusion, miscommunication, and medication errors. Enter the pharmacist. By helping with medication reconciliation, coordination of care, and patient education, pharmacists can contribute to better patient outcomes and lower rates of hospital readmissions. Learn how to enhance transition of care services from pharmacists who are applying the latest innovations and best practices.
