Health Outcomes and Pharmaceutical Care addresses the challenges of and opportunities for pharmacists to become more involved in outcomes management by becoming proactive in evaluating the effectiveness of pharmaceutical care for patients. Because many pharmacy services have the potential to improve patient outcomes and limit total costs, outcomes research can be directed toward evaluating patient care that results from pharmacists’interventions and from new clinical programs. Especially useful as a text, this book prepares today's pharmacy student to become outcome-oriented and to provide more efficient and effective pharmaceutical care.

Health Outcomes and Pharmaceutical Care shows you how outcomes management works--optimal patient utilization of health care resources is achieved, adverse outcomes are decreased, and costs are contained. Other important aspects of the outcomes system you'll examine in this book include:
  • differences between outcomes research and traditional clinical research
  • outcomes measurements
  • patient-based assessments
  • emerging state and national programs
  • monitoring of therapeutic outcomes
  • analysis of cost-effectiveness

    This book, a collection from the Proceedings of the 40th Annual Ohio Pharmaceutical Seminar, shows you the prominent role you can play in the assessment of the effects of pharmaceutical products on patient outcomes and total health care costs. In addition, you'll be motivated to become proactive in evaluating the quality and value of pharmaceutical care so that appropriately valued cognitive activities will be incorporated in the future scheme for health care provision.
