Session Summary

In the changing healthcare environment, it is critical that pharmacists gain the skills necessary to build collaborations with other healthcare providers. Successfully developing these partnerships requires more than clinical knowledge alone. Pharmacists must be able to effectively overcome barriers to providing care as well as be able to select and measure outcomes deemed important by stakeholders and other financial partners. This session will allow the participant to identify the key components of providing services in a collaborative setting that are essential in developing a value proposition for one’s clinical pharmacy service.
