Act of screening patients for ACIP recommended immunizations, educate patients about needed immunizations and administer immunizations when appropriate.
The process of comparing a patient’s medication orders to all of the medications that the patient has been taking (active, chronic, as needed and OTC including herbal) to avoid medication errors. This process should be done at every transition of care, and other times as applicable. Pharmacists should assess for discrepancies, communicate with other providers/health-systems, and work closely with the patient to ensure that their current medications are intended and appropriate. Pharmacists will document that they performed the medication reconciliation, identified any discrepancies, and communicated with other providers as necessary
Personal Medication Record

Provide each patient receiving a dispensed medication from the participating pharmacy ready access to unscheduled face-to-face meeting(s) with a pharmacist employed by the participating CPESN pharmacy during operational hours. For pharmacies not staffing a pharmacist during operational hours, a non-pharmacist involved in the patient’s care must be available for the unscheduled face-to-face visit as well as a pharmacist via appropriate telecommunication methods upon request by the patient or the pharmacy staff-person who provides service in support of that pharmacy.
