For Patients

Access our patient resources below to learn more about the role of pharmacists in your health care. Pharmacists are the most accessible health care provider, available in nearly every community (rural, urban and suburban). They are also available in a variety of care settings, including hospitals, long-term care facilities and other medical institutions. Patients are encouraged to take advantage of this accessibility to ensure that you are getting the most of your medications and the best outcomes from your therapy.
