Exploring Nutrients in Today's Patient-Centered Pharmacy Practice
Published by Pharmacists Planning Services, Inc.

Activity Description:
The use of nutrients promoting health and the ubiquitous exposure to information and products can be overwhelming and baffling to many pharmacists and pharmacy technicians. Our fair-balanced and lively exploration of patients’ use of nutrients will include trends, evidence, controversies, marketing, regulation and safety, and polypharmacy concerns.

Learners will be exposed to ways of enhancing the collection and assessment phase of patient-centered pharmacy practice. This may lead to better team-based approach to therapy management, patient loyalty, communication with patients and other clinicians and ability to discern true science from marketing science for best patient outcomes.

2. Identify basic drug-nutrient interaction principles to alert pharmacist in accordance to practice site guidelines
