Development Of Guidelines and Medication Use Policies

Our department works closely with the medical, nursing and administrative staffs in the development of guidelines and medication use policies that promote quality and efficiency in patient care while maintaining cost-effective utilization.

Through the Pharmacy and Therapeutics (P&T) Committee, our department plays an important role in the interdisciplinary process to develop guidelines for medication use. Pharmacists represent the Department on the P&T Committee and the eleven subcommittees that support its activities.

As part of the formulary evaluation process, our pharmacists consider both the clinical and economic impact of products under consideration.
