Generating evidence of the value of pharmacist-provided services

It's not enough to do the work of helping patients live better lives. We must also prove that our work is making a difference to them. 

In collaboration with the University of Southern California and the University of California San Francisco, we have conducted studies to show what's possible when clinical pharmacists get involved in the care of patients-- patients stay healthy and out of the hospital.
