Beyond Medication Regimen Reviews: Quality Measure Focused Consulting
Date: Thursday September 29th
Time: 1:00 – 2:00 PM
Description: 
Ensuring quality and improving outcomes in the long-term care setting is a team effort. Due to their complexity, medication therapy and delivery processes should be continuously monitored and improved. Pharmacists play an integral role in preventing and managing medication errors and adverse events and can have a direct impact on quality and outcome measures. Consultant pharmacists should broaden their responsibilities in skilled nursing facilities beyond medication regimen reviews by taking on roles in quality and performance improvement projects. Bethany Bramwell, RPh, BCGP, will review the specific quality and outcome measures on which an engaged consultant pharmacist can have a direct impact and discuss types of interventions aimed at improving SNF quality measures.
