Description

Pharmacists are often a key part of a successful organ transplant team and incredibly important in improving patient adherence with medications and optimizing overall patient outcomes. Transplant patients are often discharged with 10 or more medications. Many of these patients are faced with complex and changing medication regimens, financial strain and possibly even the lack of a support system. Health-system and specialty pharmacies are in a unique position to improve the transplant patient’s adherence to their medication. Additionally, pharmacists serve as a key resource to other health providers on the transplant team.

The Pharmacy Transplant Series is designed to help pharmacists better understand the very complicated post-transplant immunosuppressive regimens, the basics of immunosuppression and the issues related to infections during the post-transplant period. A particular focus on CMV prophylaxis and treatment regimens will be included.

Learning Objectives

At the completion of this webinar, the participant will be able to:

  • Identify infections that patients are at risk for in the post-transplant period.
  • Recommend appropriate CMV prophylaxis and treatment regimens, utilizing primary literature.
  • Outline strategies to assist transplant patients with medication adherence.
