The American Society of Health-System Pharmacists (ASHP) is the membership organization that works on behalf of pharmacists who practice in hospitals and health systems. For almost 70 years, we have been on the forefront of efforts to improve medication use and enhance patient safety. Our advocacy efforts, publications, and educational offerings are designed to advance your practice as you improve patient care.

ASHP News:

  • Affiliate Presidents and Executives: We have some great news to share with you! Through the auspices of the ASHP Foundation, grants are being offered to assist state affiliates in promoting the Pharmacy Practice Model Initiative at the state level. ASHP and the ASHP Foundation are pleased to provide this assistance to our state affiliate partners. To apply to this program, please refer to the application materials here

  • NABP released their policy on provisions for compounding and we thought that you would like to see it. You can find additional information about compounding and ASHP's policies on the compounding issue here.

  • The ASHP Foundation is offering an ASHP state affiliate-based program to support leadership workshops that aim to advance patient care and pharmacy practice through transformation of pharmacy practice models. Through this program, the ASHP Foundation will provide an honorarium and travel support for a pharmacist expert who will lead the workshop discussions. Following the workshop, the ASHP Foundation will provide a $2,000 seed grant to the state affiliate to support practice model-focused program. More information can be found here.

The Society's new Sterile Compounding Resource Center is the online home for a variety of resources that members need in light of the recent contamination of compounded products. The resource center includes a discussion guide to share with a health system's C-suite, guidelines from ASHP and other groups related to compounding, and a checklist of eight critical steps to take to ensure that compounded sterile products are safe for patients.

ASHP "call to action” to contact our legislators to offer support of the federal legislation: http://www.ashp.org/DocLibrary/Advocacy/S-959-Issue-Paper.pdf
