    Top 7 New Year’s Resolutions for Pharmacists

    We asked pharmacists from all over the country what resolutions pharmacists should make in 2018.


    Phil Burgess, RPh, MBA, Chairman of the Community Pharmacy Foundation

    Illinois recently mandated that patients MUST be counseled on all new prescriptions. So the concept of just “making an offer” will no longer be sufficient. And, in my opinion, having the clerk or technician saying to the patient when they pick up a prescription “Got Any Questions” will become less and less acceptable nationally on so many levels. This is a GOOD THING! As a pharmacist, my resolution for 2018 is to encourage my peers to aggressively focus on daily demonstrating to their patients the value that they can provide to improving their personal healthcare. Proactively counseling each and every patient is a good start.
