APhA 2013 Annual Meeting & Exposition

The American Pharmacists Association (APhA) brought its 2013 Annual Meeting & Exposition to Los Angeles. The general session keynote speakers, Susan Dentzer, editor-in-chief of Health Affairs, and Michael Leavitt, former Secretary of the U.S. Department of Health and Human services and former governor of Utah, set the context and offered a perspective on where trends in healthcare are headed and a strategic view on the pharmacist’s role in an evolving healthcare system. The meeting’s educational sessions covered diverse topics such as ways in which pharmacists can transform healthcare, the annual legislative and regulatory update, prevention of medication errors, opportunities in integrated care models, best practices for addressing medication management in care transitions, and the highlights from the latest installment of APhA’s MTM Digest.
