Community pharmacists & pharmacy technicians are uniquely positioned to provide the bridge for patient care as they transition from one care setting to another, often from hospital to home. We can help you get started - check out our new TOC toolkit at www.ncpanet.org/toc.
Because transitions of care require the coordination of patient care activities to ensure appropriate services are received, collaboration between all practitioners involved in the treatment plan is essential.

Local pharmacists across the country have told us stories about pharmacy benefit managers shorting the pharmacy on the actual cost of drugs. And pharmacy customers have their own complaints about P...
