Pharmacists are a tremendously underutilized resource in the health care system. The WPQC program is an extremely useful tool to help me take better care of my patients. The careful comprehensive review of patients’ medications has led to better patient engagement and educated patients. I am a strong advocate for their services and recommend them to my colleagues.
