Health Care Dream Team: How to Collaborate with Physicians


Collaboration between pharmacists and physicians can improve patient outcomes. In ambulatory care clinics, collaborative working relationships are widely used but they are not as common in community pharmacy settings—often because physicians and others don’t realize how much pharmacists can contribute. Come hear pharmacists engaged in successful health care teams share their secrets for overcoming barriers to collaboration.

This session will be audio-recorded and offered as part of the Home-Study on Demand, included with Premium Registration or available for purchase on-site at the Education Booth.
