(Community) Pharmacy 101

The NCPA blog talks about educating Congress about their value.  They also share their slide deck

I’m not sure I see how this is community pharmacy specific, but I agree that this is a good educational deck of what pharmacists do (retail, mail, specialty). 

  1. It’s more than counting pills.
  2. Immunizations.
  3. Address adherence.
  4. Educate patients and serve to support patient centered care and address MD shortage.
  5. Medication management

I was surprised at the low numbers of non-Rx discussions they have per day and the low number of physician discussions.  It would be good to benchmark those based on average store volume.
