American Pharmacists Association and the National Association of Chain Drug Stores Foundation. Medication Therapy Management in Community Pharmacy Practice: Core Elements of an MTM Service Model. Version 2. http://www.accp.com/docs/positions/misc/CoreElements.pdf. 2008. Accessed April 26, 2013. Eleven national pharmacy organizations achieved consensus on a definition of medication therapy management (MTM) in July 2004 (Appendix A). Building on the consensus definition, the American Pharmacists Association and the National Association of Chain Drug Stores Foundation developed a model framework for implementing effective MTM services in a community pharmacy setting by publishing Medication Therapy Management in Community Pharmacy Practice: Core Elements of an MTM Service Version 1.0. The original version 1.0 document described the foundational or core elements of MTM services that could be provided by pharmacists across the spectrum of community pharmacy. Medication Therapy Management in Pharmacy Practice: Core Elements of an MTM Service Model Version 2.0 is an evolutionary document that focuses on the provision of MTM services in settings where patients* or their caregivers can be actively involved in managing their medications. This service model was developed with the input of an advisory panel of pharmacy leaders representing diverse pharmacy practice settings (listed in Addendum). While adoption of this model is voluntary, it is important to note that this model is crafted to maximize both effectiveness and efficiency of MTM service delivery across pharmacy practice settings in an effort to improve continuity of care and patient outcomes. *In this document, the term patient refers to the patient, the caregiver, or other persons involved in the care of the patient.
