Medication Management:
the Role of Clinical Pharmacists

There's still time to register for tomorrow's webinar, Medication Management: Using Clinical Pharmacists To Complete Comprehensive Drug Therapy Management Post Discharge in High-Risk Patients.

A clinical pharmacist-driven medication management effort at Novant Health identifies patients at high-risk for readmissions or ED visits related to adverse drug events.

Using a combination of medication reconciliation, pharmacotherapy review, and patient education, Novant Health's clinical pharmacists are working to reduce preventable readmissions by optimizing medication regimens and removing barriers to adherence among these high-risk patients.

During this 45-minute webinar at 1:30 p.m. Eastern, Rebecca Bean, director, population health pharmacy, Novant Health, will share her organizationís medication management approach and why a clinical pharmacist is key to the programís success.
