Selling What You Can Do for Your Clients Program

Tags: Online learning, Professional pharmacy services

OVERVIEW
Please note that this course is included in the Operational PD Bundle.

Without question the pharmacy marketplace is changing. There is an increasing emphasis on reducing costs and implementing government supported services (e.g. MedsCheck). As a result, pharmacists must start thinking differently, demonstrate what they can do for patients, and ask for appropriate payment.

This presentation will explore how sales and marketing strategies can increase pharmacy revenue, but more importantly demonstrate how they can improve the overall patient care and pharmacy experience.  This interactive session is designed to allow participants to practice using common sales strategies to maximize service uptake. 

This presentation has received great uptake at OPA’s Conference 2017.
