The WSPA Clinical Community Pharmacist (CCP) is the newest patient care development for pharmacists practicing in community pharmacies. More than offering a screening, or recommending an OTC, this allows pharmacists to prescribe therapies for patients in acute situations to reduce urgent care and emergency room visits.
The Clinical Community Pharmacist Service is a tool to allow community pharmacists to meet the urgent needs of their communities. The clinical community pharmacist can provide after office hours and weekend care for their community, and care for their patients closer to home.
