Ambulatory Care (APPE)

Ambulatory Care experiences occur in a variety of practice settings including but not limited to community retail pharmacies, hospital outpatient pharmacies and clinics and physician offices. These experiences focus almost exclusively on the identification, resolution and prevention of drug related problems in settings dealing primarily with general medicine issues.  Practice functions related to pharmaceutical care system management may be incorporated into the rotation depending upon the practice site and individual practice characteristics of the experiential faculty in charge of the rotation.

Emphasis is placed on the drug use decision-making process, monitoring of individual patient's drug therapy and the communication of ideas, information and analysis to health professionals and patients.
