The Affect of Principles of Evidence-Based Practice on PPCP-Recommended Care

A lot of recent studies have focused on how to teach students and residents the Pharmacists' Patient Care Process (PPCP) and how pharmacists are already engaging with the PPCP.

Pharmacy Times spoke with Janet Cooley, PharmD, BCACP, Associate Professor and Director of Experiential Education, Pharmacy Practice and Science, University of Arizona, about her session at McKesson ideaShare 2022, titled "The Wheel of Pharmacy: The Pharmacists' Patient Care Process".

Cooley: So we've already seen evidence based practice develop around the PPCP as different organizations have studied the PPCP in practice and started to craft some guidelines for specific disease state management. So some of the examples that I like to highlight are medication management and hypertension guidelines that have been developed specifically with the patient care process steps implemented. And we've also seen a lot of studies about how to teach students and residents, the PPCP and how pharmacists are already engaging with the PPCP.
