Activity Overview 

Improving access to care, reducing biases in care, and addressing cost of care are all ways to reduce health disparities. Achieving pharmacoequity, however, requires an investment in individuals and institutions. To move toward pharmacoequity, pharmacists and pharmacy technicians must first recognize how current practices and systems perpetuate inequalities in patient care 

The American Society of Health-System Pharmacists is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Pharmacy Education as a provider of continuing pharmacy education with Commendation.

This activity was planned to meet the educational needs of those in the pharmacy workforce who are seeking to improve access to care and address inequities at their place of work.

After completing this activity, the learner should be able to…

  • Define pharmacoequity and drivers impacting medication access.
  • Discuss the impact of disparities on achieving health equity and optimal patient outcomes.
  • Identify opportunities within pharmacy practice to reduce disparities and provide equitable care. 

  • Introduction and Announcements 

  • Presentation  

  • Questions, Answers, and Discussion
