12What were the KEY recommendations from the PPMI Summit?
13Key RecommendationsAll patients should have a right to receive the care of a pharmacist.Hospital and health-system pharmacists must be responsible and accountable for patients’ medication-related outcomes.Every pharmacy department should develop a plan to reallocate its resources to devote significantly more pharmacist time to medication management services.Pharmacists who provide drug therapy management should be certified through the most appropriate board of pharmacy specialties.Pharmacist-provided drug therapy management should be prioritized using a patient medication complexity index.
14Key Recommendations (cont.) A patient medication complexity index should be developed that includes factors such as severity of illness, number of medications, and comorbidities.In optimal pharmacy practice models, individual pharmacists must accept responsibility for both the clinical and the distributive activities of the pharmacy department.Sufficient pharmacy resources must be available to safely develop, implement, and maintain technology-related medication-use safety standards.By 2015, the Pharmacy Technician Certification Board should require completion of an accredited training program before an individual can take the certification examination.To support optimal pharmacy practice models, technicians must be licensed by state boards of pharmacy.
