Brandon Shank, PharmD, BCOP - Clinical Pharmacy Specialist at the University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center - talks to us about credentialing & privileging from a front-line clinician's point of view.

  • State laws vary.  Some authorize privileging of pharmacists at the institutional level.
  • Obtaining and maintaining clinical privileges requires additional training ... and paperwork.
  • Pharmacists have a unique understanding of the dosing and available dosage forms of drugs - this brings value to the patient care team.
  • Privileging pharmacists to take on advanced clinical responsibilities can increase team efficiency and effectiveness.
