Making pharmacists part of the multidisciplinary team

, : Making pharmacists part of the multidisciplinary team. Hospital Case Management 22(2): 13-16

Having pharmacists on the multidisciplinary team can help ensure that patients progress well in the hospital and that they follow their medication plan at home and avoid emergency department visits or readmissions. Pharmacists can review medication lists and correct problems as well as ensuring that patients receive the right doses and selections of medication for their ages, weights, and conditions. They can help case managers and social workers deal with complex prescription benefits plans and help with preauthorizations and other issues that can potentially delay filling prescriptions. Pharmacists can use their knowledge of medication to recognize when a patient may not be able to afford a medication and to suggest less expensive alternatives to the physician.
