We believe that this is best provided through a team approach that effectively integrates the knowledge and skills of the pharmacist with those of other health care professionals. Our vision is to ensure the safe and optimal use of pharmaceuticals for all patients of the NC State Veterinary Hospital by having pharmacists provide a central and visible role in all aspects of medication management.
