Description

The pharmacist plays an integral part in minimizing and preventing medication-related problems. Medication therapy management (MTM) can be performed by pharmacists with or without a collaborative practice agreement (CPA) with the patients’ medical provider. Community pharmacists should have an understanding of the core elements of MTM, MTM provisions of Medicare Part D benefits and consideration of health literacy and cultural sensitivity when developing MTM services. A collaborative approach to patient care is advocated when performing an MTM, this strategy facilitates an effective route of communication between pharmacists and patients. Using case studies, this webinar will review strategies to communicate to patients through community health workers (CHWs), translation services, and to conduct the MTM process of patient assessment, identifying medication-related problems and making recommendations based on patients’ pharmacogenomics profile
