Change Packages & Best Practices

The Flip the Pharmacy Coordinating Center has created multiple, monthly change packages.
If you are participating in Flip the Pharmacy Cohort 1 or Cohort 2, then this is your Month 3 Change Package on Diabetes and Social Determinants of Health.

With this month's Change Package, we are going to focus on monitoring and medication optimization as it relates to co-morbid conditions. Some of this monitoring can be done in the pharmacy with point of care testing. We will also discuss how to start offering point of care testing or improve your current services.
