Activity Overview

There is no ACPE credit provided for this course.

In September of 2012, the College of Psychiatric and Neurologic Pharmacists adopted Comprehensive Medication Management (CMM) as the gold standard of practice for clinical pharmacists. But what is CMM and how does one go about implementing it? Additionally, how do we document and prove our value within this model? Lastly, can we get paid for these services? These are the questions we plan to answer through a webinar series starting in October 2013.
