Lindsay Dymowski, of Centennial Pharmacy Services, will be teaming up with Gerimed to film a continuing education course on medication-at-home. The Medication-at-Home continuing education course objectives are to describe the medical-at-home population and associated pharmacy services, describe why medical-at-home services are so important to the senior population, and discuss strategies for collaboration with home health agencies, obtaining referral sources with physicians, and working with family member caregivers on providing LTC pharmacy services to the medical at home population.
Centennial Pharmacy Services CEO Lindsay Dymowski says, “Gerimed has been on the forefront of providing awareness and education on medical-at-home pharmacy, not only to pharmacy owners, but also to payors and CMS. Centennial has pioneered the medical-at-home niche, and it is an honor to share our experience in medical-at-home alongside, Susan Rhodus, who so passionately advocates for medical-at-home pharmacy.”
Dymowski goes on to say, “My objective with this CE is to get leaders to start thinking outside of the ‘pharmacy box’ and for pharmacies who want to serve this population to learn that the medical-at-home patient is not a long-term-care or retail patient. Medical-at-home gives pharmacies the unique opportunity to truly be part of the patient’s care team. Providers are trusting us with their most chronically ill patients, payors are trusting us with their most expensive members, and caregivers are trusting us with their overwhelmed loved ones; Organizations wanting to serve the at-home population need to be prepared to provide a higher level of pharmacy support, and I believe this CE will help educate on how to get there.”
