Why is a pharmacist contacting me from my cardiologist’s office?
While there is no dispensing pharmacy at Capital Cardiology Associates, there is a clinical pharmacy team that works with our cardiologists, nurses, and clinical team to ensure the safest, most effective medication therapy possible for our patients. The team consists of 3 clinical pharmacists – one board-certified cardiology pharmacist and two post-graduate pharmacy residents that are completing their second year of advanced training. There are also two sixth-year pharmacy students from Albany College of Pharmacy & Health Sciences who assist with day-to-day pharmacy operations.
The clinical pharmacy team works with the CCA providers to identify medication therapies that best fit the patient’s cardiovascular health needs. Pharmacists can help develop strategies to improve medication adherence and educate patients on a variety of medication-specific concerns, including how medications work to support cardiovascular health, what common adverse effects one might expect (and how to manage them), issues with insurance and affordability, and how to safely administer medications (including injectables). The clinical pharmacy team is available for comprehensive in-person visits as well as fast, convenient telephone consultations – ask to speak with a pharmacist today!
The CCA Clinical Pharmacy team is available to meet with patients in person or by phone to answer medication questions, including side effects, medication interactions, questions on over-the-counter products or herbals, what a medication is for, how to remember to take your pills or other drug related concerns.
