Pharmacists interested in providing MTM services
STATEMENT OF NEED
Chronic diseases are the leading cause of death in the United States. The provision of high quality, interdisciplinary care is critical to helping people manage their health and their medications. Pharmacists are well positioned to address the prevention and management of chronic diseases as the most accessible health care practitioner. 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 online training is the first step for pharmacists to provide care through the PPCN.
The Pennsylvania Pharmacists Association is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Pharmacy Education as a provider of continuing pharmacy education. UAN: 0159-0000-15-001-H04-P. Contact Hours: 6.0 (0.60 CEUs). Activity Type: Application-based.
