Grant Summary:

This project is a process improvement effort intended to increase the amount of community pharmacist-provided patient care services delivered to patients in Iowa. The value of pharmacist-provided medication therapy management (MTM) services in improving medication-therapy related health outcomes has been demonstrated in multiple previous studies. This project addresses one of the major barriers to provision of these services which is lack of pharmacists’ time.
