APhA commits $1.5 million to ensure patient access to pharmacists' clinical services
AzPA
Last weekend, the APhA Board of Trustees made a major commitment to give patients access to pharmacists' clinical services. The board's action followed months of preparatory work and direction from our House of Delegates and led to allocation of $1.5 million towards a multiyear, multifaceted, multimillion-dollar effort to help the profession gain recognition of pharmacists' roles as healthcare providers. APhA is committed to working with pharmacy, patient and other healthcare organizations on this initiative and to that end has several initiatives under way right now. However, we know our financial commitment will not be nearly enough without broad support from within and outside the profession.
