New survey shows value of consultant pharmacists

December 13, 2004

Consultant pharmacists (CPs) can breathe a sigh of relief. Other professionals in long-term care value and appreciate pharmacists and pharmacy services. That is the conclusion of the 2004 Senior Care Source, an interdisciplinary survey of long-term care health professionals. The annual survey, sponsored by Novartis, includes pharmacists, medical directors, nursing directors, and nurse practitioners (NPs) in long-term care. The survey was released at the American Society of Consultant Pharmacists Annual Meeting & Exhibition held in San Francisco last month.
