Health Care Dream Team: How to Collaborate with Physicians

Activity Preview

Collaboration between pharmacists and physicians can improve patient outcomes. In ambulatory care clinics, collaborative working relationships are widely used but they are not as common in community pharmacy settings—often because physicians and others don’t realize how much pharmacists can contribute. Come hear pharmacists engaged in successful health care teams share their secrets for overcoming barriers to collaboration.

Learning Objectives

At the completion of this application-based activity, participants will be able to:

  1. Identify the barriers that pharmacists must overcome to increase awareness about their skill sets among other members of the health care team.
  2. Demonstrate effective relationship-building strategies that pharmacists can use to develop collaborations with other members of the health care team.
