Abstract

Medication therapy problems, such as incorrect dosing, adverse drug reactions, and decreased adherence, result in harm to patients and increases in costs. In the literature, there are many examples of pharmacist-physician partnerships aimed to optimize patients’ medication use. As more nurse-managed health clinics continue to open, it is important for the nurse practitioner to consider partnership opportunities. In this report we describe an interprofessional “teamlet” consisting of a pharmacist and nurse practitioner as a model of collaborative care.
