Pharmacists often encounter clinical scenarios without a definitive answer where determining the best course of treatment is challenging. This course will present clinical cases and provide a review of the literature in these situations. Leave this interactive session with a better understanding of the evidence and more confidence in your recommendations for future patient encounters.
