- Learning Outcomes
- The aim of this paper is for students to be able to formulate 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
