In community pharmacy, patients are people and friends, not just disease states. The mainstay of community pharmacy is the care and counseling of patients from the prescription angle, but who better to understand and counsel the whole patient than someone who the patient trusts and can easily access? Supplemental nutrition, anti-aging, stress relief, and general wellness are just a few of the niche markets that help pharmacies forge a stronger relationship with patients and the community. In this session, share ideas and options for front-end patient care with your peers and discover which products other pharmacy owners are successfully using.

Pharmacist and Pharmacy Technician Learning Objectives:

  1. Discuss potential pharmacy front-end niches that provide good options for health care-related patient care.

  2. Evaluate market attributes to assess niche potential based on patient population.

  3. Discuss key counseling issues and areas of concern in the front-end patient care environment.
