American journal of health-system pharmacy : AJHP : official journal of the American Society of Health-System Pharmacists
These guidelines outline important considerations and recommend processes for formulary system management within the context of a hospital or health system. Pharmacist responsibilities and roles in managing the formulary system in partnership with other healthcare professionals are embedded throughout. These guidelines also provide assistance to pharmacists in the organization and operation of the pharmacy and therapeutics (P&T) committee or equivalent body, evaluation of medications for formularies and consideration of rational use of medications, and development and implementation of strategies to optimize medication use through the formulary system.
