APhA/NACDS Core Elements of An MTM Service Model ver. 2.0
Medication Therapy Management in Pharmacy Practice: Core Elements of an MTM Service Model Version 2.0 is a document that focuses on the provision of MTM services in settings where patients or their caregivers can be actively involved in managing their medications. This service model was developed with the input of an advisory panel of pharmacy leaders representing diverse pharmacy practice settings. While adoption of this model is voluntary, it is important to note that this model is crafted to maximize both effectiveness and efficiency of MTM service delivery across pharmacy practice settings in an effort to improve continuity of care and patient outcomes. This document was adopted by a number of pharmacy organizations including AMCP.
