Integrating the Role of Pharmacists in Medication Management for At-Risk Patients

Individuals with chronic illnesses often do not adhere to their medication regimens (especially complex ones), typically because they find doing so to be challenging or burdensome, particularly over long periods of time. These challenges are especially pronounced for low-income, uninsured, & elderly individuals who may not receive adequate support in understanding & managing their medications.

This issue’s featured Innovations describe two programs that used different approaches to integrate the delivery of medication management services by pharmacists into care for at-risk patients.

Public Health Matters Blog: Medicine Dispensing Exercise Held at Costco


When you think “community,” what comes to mind? Maybe you immediately think of neighbors and friends who live nearby, or perhaps local businesses, churches, civic organizations and others. What about some of your regular stops around your community such as your pharmacy where you fill your prescriptions or buy over-the-counter medicine? Most people have trusted community partners they know well and with whom they interact regularly in everyday life. In fact, some of these same community partners are working with local, state, and federal public health planners to help your communities prepare for emergencies.

In June 2015, a Costco warehouse in Potomac Mills, VA, partnered with Prince William County (Virginia) Health District to show how a private business can step up to help its community in an emergency.
