Integrating Immunizations into the Patient Care Process – Home Study

Activity Preview

To ensure consistency in the delivery of patient care services, the Joint Commission of Pharmacy Practitioners released the Pharmacists’ Patient Care Process (PPCP) in 2014. The process is applicable to any practice setting and for any patient care service that pharmacists provide. In this webinar, three experts in the field will give an overview of how to apply the PPCP—collect, assess, plan, implement, and follow-up through monitoring and evaluation—to immunization services and how to make immunization recommendations using the process.
