In 2011, the United Way of Dane County (UWDC) formed a partnership with the Pharmacy Society of Wisconsin’s Wisconsin Pharmacy Quality Collaborative for pharmacists to provide Comprehensive Medication Review/Assessment Services to older adults in Dane County communities. The goal was to decrease falls and adverse drug events in order to increase the time in which older adults are able to stay in their homes. In 2017, this model of community collaboration was incorporated into UW Health’s integrated health system as the Smart Meds program. This webinar describes the strategic goals of UWDC and community programs that developed, the origin of the UWDC Smart Meds program, the initial results of the Smart Meds program, and future applications for program advancement.
Developed & Conducted by the Pharmacy Society of Wisconsin
in cooperation with the Division of Pharmacy Professional Development,
