A patient-centered approach to pharmacy visits combined with motivational interviewing by community pharmacists is improving medication adherence rates for members of Highmark Blue Cross Blue Shield.

The pilot program, a collaborative between Highmark, the University of Pittsburgh School of Pharmacy, and Rite Aid pharmacies, is training pharmacists to use motivational interviewing techniques with patients at risk of medication non-adherence.

Improving Medication Adherence Benchmarks Through Community Pharmacist Interventions During Improving Medication Adherence Benchmarks Through Community Pharmacist Interventions, a 45-minute webinar on May 25th at 1:30 pm Eastern Time, you’ll hear from Janice Pringle, Ph.D, director of the program evaluation research unit at the University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine, who will describe how patients are identified for the intervention and the tools and strategies that pharmacists are using to improve adherence benchmark levels.

You will get the inside details on:

  • The key elements of the screening tool to identify patients at risk;
  • The interventions included in the program that address the key reasons that patients are non-adherent;
  • How to develop a collaborative relationship with pharmacists and prescribing physicians to improve adherence levels; and
  • The cultural and organizational changes that must occur within community pharmacies to ensure the success of the program.
