That’s My Pharmacist is a public relations initiative that encourages patients to get to know their pharmacist. In 2014, 4.3 billion prescriptions were filled in the U.S. Although the average American makes frequent trips to the pharmacy for themselves or their family, most people don’t even know the name of their pharmacist and may not have a clear understanding of the prescriptions they take and the key role that a pharmacist plays in their health care.
Pharmacists are the most accessible healthcare provider, whose ultimate goal is to keep patients healthy and safe. Pharmacists are also the medication experts, providing patients with all the information they need to have safe and effective outcomes from their medication therapy.
As a pharmacy professional, you are encouraged to utilize the resources below made available by MPA and MSHP.
If you’d like to make these resources available in your pharmacy or other practice site location, please email MPA@MichiganPharmacists.org.
