    • Overview

      Pharmacist malpractice liability can be reduced through effective patient education measures.  This monograph explains how to engage in patient education in ways that decrease the likelihood of a malpractice lawsuit.  Sometimes it is not just what it said, but how it is said.  Case study scenarios are used to provide examples of language that can be either effective or ineffective in patient education by pharmacists.
