Abstract

The current emphasis on cost containment and its impact on pharmacy practice is reviewed. Methods by which existing standards of practice can be maintained are presented. Strategies for increasing the pharmacist's role in patient care within this climate are discussed. Examples of cost-effective approaches to pharmacy management and practice are outlined. Specific approaches include fiscal management of inventory, efficient use of personnel, and developing programs that reduce health-care cost.
