Written By: Hanan Khalaf. RPH


By definition, is a committee of the medical staff and only one or two pharmacists as members. Commonly, the pharmacy director serves as the committee’s secretary.
Physicians acting as members in the P&T committee, are usually chosen from various areas of practice, with a chairperson from among the physician representatives. P&T committee might include representatives from other areas of the hospital as nursing, administration, quality assurance as members as well.
