On Purpose: Answering The Call To Be A Pharmacist Healthcare Provider
Published by Pharmacists Planning Services, Inc.

Activity Description:
Being a pharmacist is a higher calling and not a job. Practicing ON PURPOSE changes the lives of our patients and also changes ours as pharmacists. How do we disrupt and evolve the status quo to achieve this state of "Nirvana" in pharmacy practice? This program will show you how, inspire you and propel you to create your "nirvana" for you and most importantly, your patients.

Antiretroviral therapy is at the center of treatment strategies for HIV Infected individuals. The role of the HIV Pharmacist is critical in effective patient adherence, monitoring drug-drug interactions and managing adverse reactions. The pharmacist is an important member of the patient’s healthcare team, being a pivotal link in the HIV Continuum of Care.

Effective Pharmacist consultation programs identify key problems with HIV drug therapy and comorbidities, over the counter medications, supplements as well as illicit drug use. The pharmacist takes a holistic approach taking into consideration the patient’s mental health, psychosocial situation, identifying problems and developing solutions and care plans and referrals for the patient promoting positive outcomes and improved quality of life.

While improving care, antiretroviral adherence, outcomes and quality of life the pharmacist interventions also decrease healthcare costs, by preventing hospitalizations, decreased medication use, adverse reactions and in some cases even death.
