The Role Of The Pharmacist In Chronic Kidney Disease

Clinical pharmacy services have the potential to contribute significantly to the multidisciplinary team by providing safe, effective, and economic care for patients. Given recent practice developments (e.g. polypharmacy reviews and pharmacist prescribing), there is a need to provide a current synthesis of evidence-based characteristics and outcomes of clinical pharmacy practice in treating patients with chronic kidney disease (CKD). Dr. Calvin Meaney and Dr. Katie Cardone outline the role of both inpatient and outpatient clinical pharmacy services as well as discuss medication therapy challenges in managing patients with CKD.

*Dr Meaney and Ms Cardone are paid consultants of Otsuka Pharmaceutical Development & Commercialization, Inc. (OPDC). Dr Voigt is an employee of OPDC.
