October is American Pharmacist Month. Pharmacists serve a very important role for the hospice industry. They are critical in allowing hospices to provide the comfort care that's at the heart of the hospice mission.
In this episode, Helen & Jerry discuss the work that pharmacists do in managing medicines for the care of hospice patients. They also help hospice agencies provide optimum care while still managing costs.
For pharmacists who may be interested, there's a Society of Palliative Care Pharmacists that offers resources for pharmacists in the area of palliative care. Their website is at www.palliativepharmacist.org.
To all of the pharmacists who serve hospice and palliative care patients, the Heart of Hospice would like to say thank you for your professionalism and dedication.
