The Student Pharmacy Forecast Workshop is a great way to promote student awareness of emerging trends in healthcare and opportunities within pharmacy practice. The 2.5 hour workshop utilizes several methods of teaching which include didactic lecture, a case-based workshop, and an interactive voting session.
The workshop was developed in 2016 by the members of the Section of Pharmacy Practice Leaders (formerly Section of Pharmacy Practice Managers) in the Innovation Management Advisory Group. The presentation has been given in nearly 20 states with nearly 500 participants since its inception. This workshop is broken into two sections. The first half of the workshop includes the didactic portion which provides an overview of ASHP, the ASHP Research and Education Foundation, and the Pharmacy Forecast. Utilizing the Pharmacy Forecast, students learn about emerging health-care trends and their impact on pharmacy practice. The second half of the workshop allows students to breakout into smaller group sessions. During the small group sessions, students apply the knowledge gained from the didactic lecture as well as their own experiences to discuss case studies. This is followed by facilitated discussion and large group summary presentations on the topics discussed in each group. The cases cover Pharmacy Forecast themes such as: Population Health Management, Data and Technology, and the Pharmacy Workforce.
