AACC 2019 Booth Presentation: Harnessing the Power of Pharm/Lab Collaboration

Whether intentionally or incidentally, the lab and pharmacy departments interact on a daily basis. But what does that look like, and how do we turn toward more intentional collaboration? The key is to identify where these interactions take place. Dr. Kauffman will discuss how emerging, high profile initiatives (e.g., precision medicine) depend heavily upon teamwork and leadership from both the lab and pharmacy departments for better patient outcomes.

Originally presented on August 6, 2019 in Anaheim, California.
