A Free Educational Series for Pharmacists

This 2-part educational series addresses the challenges pharmacists face in caring for patients with chronic heart failure. 

The series begins by exploring barriers to care at the patient-level and system-level. Citing the evidence for guideline-directed medical therapy and best practices in transitions of care faculty and participants discuss options for improving patient care and reducing hospital readmissions. Peer-to-peer learning opportunities allow participants to compare their own patient education materials and patient care protocols. The series continues with an Ask the Experts activity that uses clinical cases to apply these concepts and addresses lingering questions on drug therapy and clinical services.
