Activity Overview

As the original ASHP Practice Advancement Initiative reaches its tenth anniversary, the pharmacy profession still faces challenges related to changes in healthcare structure.  Continued disruption requires the profession to evolve to address pressures such as rising costs, changing workforce and business models, technological and therapeutic advances, and evolution of practice settings.  ASHP has revised the PAI recommendations accordingly to project the next ten years.  This session will review and describe the recommendations and some strategies for applying them.


The American Society of Health-System Pharmacists is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Pharmacy Education as a provider of continuing pharmacy education.
