Abstract

Establishment of a multidisciplinary clinical pharmacology consult service (CPCS) can be an important adjunct to a successful formulary management system. This article describes the model of a CPCS developed at the University of California Davis Medical Center. The CPCS provides patient- specific consultations, serves a leadership role in directing the medical staff toward hospital-wide drug usage guidelines for high cost pharmaceutical agents, and enforces the P and T Committee adopted criteria on selected high- cost or high risk agents. The mission of the CPCS is to provide the P and T Committee with a multidisciplinary mechanism to educate health care providers, improve patient care, establish drug usage criteria, and enforce those criteria.
