CDC creates resource to facilitate partnership between physicians and pharmacists

Listen

As the role of pharmacists in patient care services continues to expand in many communities, establishing partnerships between pharmacists and physicians has become an increasingly important factor in the care of chronically ill patients.

To aid in the forming of such partnerships, the CDC's Division for Heart Disease and Stroke Prevention, in collaboration with the American Medical Association and the American Pharmacists Association, have developed a new guide. The guide provides examples of existing community-clinical partnerships and information on collaborative drug therapy management programs, among other resources.

"This document is an important resource for pharmacists, physicians and other community resources to share their knowledge and identify ways to collaborate to improve population health," said Stacia Spridgen, PharmD, director of the APhA Federal Pharmacy Program.
