PHARMACEUTICAL CARE CONFERENCE TO BE HELD OCT. 29 AND 30

 PHARMACEUTICAL CARE CONFERENCE TO BE HELD OCT. 29 AND 30
 PHILADELPHIA, Oct. 27 /PRNewswire/ -- The Pennsylvania Society of Hospital Pharmacists is sponsoring a Pharmaceutical Care consensus conference, "Direction for Pharmaceutical Care in Pennsylvania," on Oct. 29 and 30 at the Marriott Hotel in Harrisburg, Pa.
 The purpose of the conference is to discuss and study the importance of pharmaceutical care and to establish a strategic plan that will advance the practice of hospital pharmacy in Pennsylvania.
 Every year, thousands of people are hospitalized because of adverse drug reactions or medication misuse, with an estimated annual cost of $7 billion. This fact emphasizes the necessity of implementing a strategy that will allow pharmacists to deliver pharmaceutical care to patients.
 Pharmaceutical care, as defined by Linda M. Strand, PharmD., Ph.D., "is that component of pharmacy practice which entails the direct interaction of the pharmacists with the patient for the purpose of caring for that patient's drug related needs." Pharmaceutical care allows a pharmacist to become more a part of a patient's quick recovery, reduce their medical bills, and improve their quality of life.
 The PSHP conference will bring together more than 70 leading hospital pharmacists, from across the commonwealth, and other health care professionals, to voice their opinions on the barriers and strategies to implementing pharmaceutical care.
 PSHP is devoted to the enhancement of pharmaceutical care in Pennsylvania. All strides made at this conference will not only benefit Pennsylvania pharmacists and patients, but also pharmacists and patients around the nation.
