Project Description

Often, patients turn to accessible health care options – urgent care centers, emergency rooms, physicians’ offices, and pharmacies – as the first line of defense for minor ailments, such as an allergic reactions or abrasions. The goal of this project is to apply a physician-pharmacist collaborative practice model to evaluate quality of care, access to treatment and costs for treating patients for a narrow set of minor ailments in community pharmacies as compared to other healthcare settings.
