AMCP Talks: Success Stories in Biosimilar Adoption

Please note this session is not accredited for continuing pharmacy education credit.

Session Description:

AMCP is proud to once again offer AMCP Talks, an innovative education experience that mixes short, focused presentations with an interactive panel discussion. For AMCP eLearning Days, AMCP Talks will focus on success stories related to biosimilar adoption.

Since their introduction into the U.S. marketplace, biosimilars have faced an uphill battle to gain acceptance and market share. Barriers to adoption include concerns over safety among clinicians, misinformation, and lack of interchangeability at the pharmacy level.

During this session, participants will hear from managed care organizations and a clinician who will share how they have overcome hurdles to biosimilar adoption and had success. You will hear real-life examples of what these thought-leaders are doing. What has worked? What hasn’t worked? What outcomes are they experiencing? Come find out!
