According to studies, more than 20 percent of North Americans are 55 years or older and this growing segment of the population accounts for more than 40 percent of all prescriptions dispensed. With the existing shortage of pharmacists, as prescription volumes grow pharmacists will be forced to fill more prescriptions in less time. How can we improve output, productivity, and efficiency without the increased workload leading to increases in dispensing errors? This seminar--known to its audiences as the "Who Wants to be a Pharmacist?" game-- addresses these problems and proposes solutions to make the practice of pharmacy more efficient without sacrificing dispensing accuracy or patient care.
