  • List examples of how a clinical decision support system can enable health system specialty pharmacists to provide consistent, proactive patient care.
  • Apply best practices and recommendations when designing their own research study.

Pharmacy Technician Learning Objectives
After attending this webinar, pharmacy technicians will be able to:

  • Describe how health system specialty pharmacy liaisons can help promote proactive pharmacist interventions to improve patient outcomes across disease states.
