The primary focus of the course will be on professional and administrative responsibilities, skills, and policy and procedures development. The coursework will be presented by Florida licensed consultant pharmacists who have extensive experience in the areas of; Law, ALF, Surgical Center, Preceptorship, Managed Care, Behavioral Health, LTC, ICF-MR, and Acute Care Institutional settings.
