Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Successful examples of teams and drug use evaluations explore communication strategies to enhance quality improvement of medication use. Topics highlighted include establishing contacts within key departments, creating committee connections, fostering physician and nurse participation, and increasing visibility and maintaining awareness. Multidisciplinary collaboration and linkage between the hospital and the managed care pharmacy are also reviewed. Medication use can be improved by integrating these communication tactics.
