Pharmacists: Ensuring Safe, Effective Medication Use

APhM is celebrated annually during October and serves to promote pharmacists as medication experts, an integral member of the health care team, and directly involved in patient care. APhM aims to educate the public, policy makers and other health care professionals about the role pharmacists play in the reduction of overall health care costs and the safe and effective management of medications. Pharmacists have a significant role in assessing patients’ medication management in patients and referring them to physicians.

It is a time to educate your patients, motivate your staff, and engage and inspire your community to "Know Your Pharmacists, Know Your Medicine."
