Here are tenets pharmacists can embrace and incorporate into their daily practice.
Regardless of how the Affordable Care Act is implemented in the coming months and years, these are the general tenets of Health Care Reform as we view them. The editors believe that pharmacists would do well to incorporate these tenets into their daily practice in order to maximize their role within the 21st-century health care team. We encourage you to embrace these tenets, regardless of your role within the health care system or the setting in which you practice. The Directions in Pharmacy series of supplements has been designed to help pharmacists better understand the nature and magnitude of changes underway throughout the entirety of the health care system. We hope that you find them interesting and helpful.
