MEDS Ed is an ongoing education series by CareOregon’s Pharmacy team. It’s geared to health care professionals involved in direct patient care at community clinics. Attendees leave with valuable tools and insights that improve how they can contribute to multi-disciplinary teams.
Each three-hour MEDS Ed session examines a disease state that highly impacts patient quality of life, requires complex management, and may lead to increased emergency department visits and inpatient stays. Speakers are pharmacists and clinicians from the community and from CareOregon staff.
