- Learning Outcomes
- The aim of this paper is for students to be able to identify the components of a care
plan. Pharmaceutical care plans are individualised/patient-focused treatment strategies
developed by clinical pharmacists. A care plan involves the following processes:
- Assessment of the patient
- Formulation of a treatment option
- Enacting this treatment option
- Monitoring the patient's outcomes
- Reflection on outcomes
- Return to "assessment of the patient" and continue the cycle
