Ambulatory Care

Ambulatory care pharmacists interact with patients in an outpatient clinic setting for the management of chronic conditions such as diabetes, hypertension, and high cholesterol.

Often pharmacists in ambulatory care clinics have arranged collaborative practice agreements with the physicians with whom they work. These pharmacists are typically responsible for adjusting medication doses (i.e., warfarin doses in an anticoagulation clinic), counseling patients on side effects of medications and the importance of medication adherence, and making therapy recommendations to prescribing physicians.
