Overview: Clinical pharmacists work to provide patient-centered care through monitoring and managing disease states. The fundamental skills necessary to provide this type of service include communication, physical assessment, and laboratory and diagnostic information, as well as patient case presentation, therapeutic planning, and monitoring of drug intake. Pharmaceutical Care Lab 4 focuses on these skills to allow pharmacy students the opportunities to learn and practice patient care for various disease states and document their findings. Today you will have the opportunity to perform several of these skills for a patient who has signs and symptoms of diabetes. As you go through the stations, you will document your findings.
