Pharmacists provide value to the health care system every day, in many settings. The ability to conduct research in the community pharmacy setting is often limited by institutional review boards, by professional time, and by the lack of academic researchers located in community pharmacies. Even with these challenges, important community-based research is being done every day. It is time for pharmacists to move beyond justifying their existence in the health care team, to demonstrating and publishing on their value to the health care system. This value can be expressed through decreased hospital admissions, cost-savings, patient satisfaction, and through improved outcomes. Value may also be expressed in new legislation or new regulations intended to remove barriers to the advanced practices being taught in colleges and schools of pharmacy across the United States and around the world.
Share your findings in this Special Issue of Pharmacy and help to create a resource for all those who advocate for community pharmacists and the services we provide.
