PharmTalk: Innovative Practices in Transitions of Care - Part II

Description

So much can go wrong when patients transition between care settings. The door is wide 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 hospital readmission rates. Learn how to enhance transition of care services from fellow pharmacists who are applying the latest innovations and best practices.
