Thank you to the speakers, attendees and sponsors who made CFP's 2017 Pharmacy Forum on November 21 a successful exchange of information, ideas and considerations for the future. We took a closer look at what needs to happen for pharmacists to deliver -- and be recognized for -- consistent, measurable value to the healthcare system.
In January, CFP will release a more detailed report on the day's proceedings, including input from the audience and results from several audience polls (such as their opinions on the implementation of a value-based payment or value-based care system similar to what's happening in the U.S.).
Here is a summary of the day's agenda:
