Pharmaceutical Poetry 2017: Recent Updates in Clinical Research for the Practicing Pharmacist

originally presented at PPA's 2017 Mid-Year Conference


The term POEM (patient-oriented evidence that matters) refers to a clinical study that addresses relevant, patient-oriented outcomes with feasible interventions; the results of which, if found to be valid, has significant practice implications.  This session will explain how the practicing pharmacist can identify a pharmaceutical POEM and review the findings and practice implications of recent clinical studies that affect their daily practice.
