Activity Overview 

Pharmacists are responsible for determining which medication use and management aspects are best handled by pharmacists, by artificial intelligence (AI), or by pharmacists who receive advice from AI-based systems. In addition, pharmacists are uniquely positioned to be the key contributors and domain experts in the advancement of AI in healthcare. This webinar will explore the challenges and opportunities to refine different aspects of the medication-use process via AI.
