Transitions of Care in Pharmacy Casebook

  • ISBN 9781260474619
100 complex cases illustrate how to ensure safe, effective treatment during transition between care settings

Moving a patient from one healthcare provider or setting to another-transition of care-increases the risk of medication error due to inadequate communication and poor coordination. Providing a deep dive into a critical but rarely addressed topic, Transition of Care Casebook in Pharmacy explains how to deliver and optimize complex patient care during such transitions.

The author makes the case that while guideline- and evidence-based therapy is important, pharmacists must address other patient-specific needs and possible obstacles barriers to safety, efficacy, and adherence of therapies. Organized by disease state, each case incorporates clinical knowledge, patient education, effective communication, and social issues.
