Your Pharmacist: The Key to Improving Your Health Through Proper Medication Use

 

Summary:

According to the CDC, nearly 50% of adults in the United States have at least one chronic condition such as diabetes. This presentation will discuss how patients can utilize pharmacists to better understand their chronic conditions and improve their health. Topics covered include pharmacist training, top medication concerns, and Medication Therapy Management (MTM). MTM is a personalized service that achieves desired health outcomes by helping patients make the best use of their medications. Pharmacists are now providing these services in a variety of settings, including telephonic centers such as the Medication Management Program at The Ohio State University College of Pharmacy.
