This course provides students with an overview of what constitutes a healthy lifestyle and how it contributes to the prevention of chronic disease. Pharmacists are key providers in helping to educate patients about wellness and disease prevention. Disease State Management (DSM) is an organized, coordinated process to manage specific disease states over the entire course of the disease to improve clinical and economic outcomes for the patient. Students will be exposed to important DSM models such as the Asheville Project in North Carolina and utilize this information in creating a disease management program.
