CPE Speaker Series

Financial viability of patient care-focused independent community pharmacy practice

Join the CPE for a debate-style event where our Leader-In-Residence Mike Sullivan will propose an argument for both sides of the question: Is a service-intensive, care-focused model of independent community pharmacy practice financially viable? After sharing his thoughts, Mike will also moderate a live discussion with our audience – so please bring your questions! This event promises to explore the complexities of current pharmacy practice, including dispensing, Preferred Provider Networks, reimbursement models, outcome metrics, and more.
