Incorporating ASHP Resources in Strategic Planning
With multiple competing priorities such as the COVID-19 pandemic and staffing shortages, it has been difficult to prioritize strategic objectives. Pharmacists and technicians in heath-system leadership roles may not be aware of American Society of Health-System Pharmacists (ASHP) resources available to assist them in strategic planning. ASHP tools will be reviewed, allowing the Member to incorporate the 2022 ASHP Pharmacy Forecast and ASHP Practice Advancement Initiative 2030 into its strategic plan.
Pharmacist Learning Objectives:
- Discuss the recommendations from the 2022 ASHP/ASHP Foundation Pharmacy Forecast Report for incorporation into a health-system strategic plan.
- Describe how to use the Practice Advancement Initiative (PAI) 2030 recommendations can be applied to your health-system strategic planning.
- Identify internal and external forces that will impact the future of pharmacy.
Pharmacy Tech Learning Objectives:
- Discuss specific initiatives that will improve the technician shortage.
- Explain how advanced pharmacy technician roles improve the practice of pharmacy.
