The role of the pharmacist continues to grow and move towards a greater involvement in direct patient care. In many cases, that involvement is as part of a collaborative care team. Pharmacist–physician collaborations have been shown to improve patient outcomes, increase access to care, increase efficiency, and patient satisfaction. Despite these benefits, challenges to successful collaborations exist and they still represent an exception to rather than the usual care.
We invite you to share your approaches and successes in developing and implementing innovative pharmacist–physician collaborations. We also welcome research describing the challenges and barriers to wider adoption of successful collaborations. We hope this Special Issue will inspire other pharmacists and researchers to develop new innovative collaborations, and adopt new approaches.Dr. Donald G. Klepser
