"This is a helpful tool. For pharmacy managers or pharmacists responsible for meeting accreditation standards for medication management, it provides useful information that is easy to follow."
-- Barbara Giacomelli, PharmD, MBA, FASHP (McKesson Provider Technologies) Doody's Review
Intended for pharmacies to help them meet medication management standards, the guide also can be used by someone outside the pharmacy who has responsibility for accreditation.
