Closed on Weekends
Phone: 410-328-5243

An appropriately selected and refined pharmaceutical care model will shape the patient-centered services. The care will be delivered by pharmacy staff members who provide and accept responsibility for the product-related and clinical activities that compose the pharmaceutical care model.

The product-related activities will be technology-based and technician-led. The product-related activities will be supported by systems designed to promote efficiency and ensure patient safety.

The clinical component of the pharmaceutical care model will be supported by specialized clinical practitioners. These specialized practitioners will accomplish this by maintaining a high level of clinical acumen through their practices, by developing clinical systems, and by infusing both into the pharmaceutical care model.
