Primary Care/Pharmacist Partnerships
Saturday, March 13, 2021
10:55 AM – 11:40 AM
Medication therapy management (MTM) is a group patient care services provided by pharmacists to ensure the best therapeutic outcomes for patients. Pharmacists provide medication therapy management to help patients get the most benefit from their medications by actively managing drug therapy and by identifying, preventing and resolving medication-related problems.
Pharmacists address drug and non-drug therapy, as well as lifestyle modifications that enable patients to manage their conditions and medications for many chronic disease states (i.e.: Diabetes, Asthma, COPD, Heart Failure, Parkinson’s Disease, Alzheimer’s Disease, Depression)
The case discussions during this session will illustrate the importance of medication management in maximizing the benefits of the physician’s treatment plan for each patient. An upcoming five-part ECHO series on the opportunities for successfully incorporating pharmacist-led medication management into physician practices is planned for May 2021.
- Describe the key elements of Medication Therapy Management (MTM)
- Identify areas of patient care in your practice that can benefit from pharmacist provided medication therapy management
- Explain the various medication and disease related patient care services pharmacists provide
