Abstract:  Patient care within the US healthcare system is changing constantly, as are the roles of healthcare practitioners, including pharmacists. For over 30 years, pharmacists have promoted the concept of clinical pharmacy, which places pharmacists in a central role in patient medication management. The goal is to allow the pharmacist to become a vital part of treatment planning by individualizing patients’ therapeutic regimens. The Collaborative Drug Therapy Management agreement is a step toward that goal. The combination of drug therapy management and compounding pharmacy can be powerful in meeting patients’ specific needs.
