A Pharmacist’s Role in Healthcare
The current team-based model of health care puts primary physicians in the role of leading a team of professionals to better manage patient care. The team often includes non-physician practitioners, such as pharmacists, who actively participate in chronic disease management.
The pharmacist’s role in health care continues to evolve. Initiatives have been started to evaluate and expand the role of pharmacists on the patient-centered medical team.
