increase their influence on drug prescribing in the community
setting, [it] is vital that general practitioners and pharmacists set
common goals on how to optimize pharmacotherapy" (Gallagher).
Improved communication can clarify clinician roles within a
patient's care plan and ensure that all involved parties are working
toward the same outcome.
While formulating a solution may be a difficult task, there
are several steps that can be taken to move the field in the right
direction. It was found that video-stimulated feedback given to
physicians-in-training by pharmacists is feasible and was positively
received. Participants in the study "appreciated the reinforcement
of good practice as well as the opportunity to reflect on and
improve practice" (Parker). By implementing these methods of
communication, physicians and pharmacists are able to form better
working relationships. Systems that encourage more personal
interaction, such as video or phone calls, have proven to yield
several benefits, such as saving time, decreasing expenses, and
refining care plans.
It is important to recognize the limited quantity of current
research on this matter. It is clear that enhancing communication
tactics will improve patient care, but there is not a singular solution
agreed upon by medical professionals. Data clearly demonstrates
the issue's relevance; yet, it is neglected. Research on clinicianclinician communication should continue in order to formulate an
acceptable, well-rounded solution.
As an aspiring healthcare professional, it is my hope that the
field will devote more attention to its methods of communication.
Physicians and pharmacists are busy, vital professionals in the
medical field, and their teamwork is paramount to providing
desirable patient outcomes. Technology is constantly evolving, and
EMRs are an example of how those advancements can improve
clinician communication; however, it is not being utilized to its
full potential. Healthcare systems and clinicians should continue to
work towards increasing collaboration through the implementation
of innovative systems that focus on goal-setting and ongoing
dialogue.
