As our population continues to age, frailty is becoming an area of concern for pharmacists. Patient-centered care will be challenged to accommodate the frail elderly. Pharmacists play a critical role in the transition of care for the frail patient across the continuum of care. When caring for the frail and the aging population, a pharmacist should consider obtaining an Advance Practice Pharmacist license to best utilize their skills to maximize the effectiveness of medication therapy and increase quality of life for these individuals. The goal of this webinar is to discuss the concept of frailty, the implications in medication therapy and how to utilize the APP status to best provide pharmacist generated care for the geriatric population.
- Define the concept of frailty, and it’s relation to multimorbidity and polypharmacy.
- Recognize the essentials of healthcare professional collaboration to ensure effective transition of frail individuals through the continuum of care.
- Identify the requirements for Advance Practice Pharmacists.
- Discuss the Advance Practice Pharmacist role in caring for frail populations.
