CE: Pennsylvania Pharmacists Care Network Patient Care Training
The Pennsylvania Pharmacists Care Network (PPCN) has been developed to serve as the structure for pharmacists in Pennsylvania to work together to care for individual medication-related needs in local communities. The focus of the PPCN will be to connect pharmacists, payers and health care practitioners in order to deliver medication management services to patients in the Commonwealth. The goal of the PPCN is to improve patient outcomes, enhance quality, and reduce overall healthcare costs. This live training session is designed to reinforce the concepts covered in the online training modules in an active learning environment through a patient case, documenting and billing encounters, and implementing patient care services in your practice setting.
