"Not everything that is faced can be changed, but nothing can be changed until it is faced."
― James Baldwin
As healthcare practitioners, we are called to enhance the health and well-being of patients and the communities we serve. As the profession continues to recover from the pandemic, evolves, and modernizes, addressing future opportunities and challenges will require us to think boldly and act persistently.
Nationally, ASHP is well-positioned to lead our profession into tomorrow's pharmacy landscape. But it will also require each of us, at the state and local levels, to advocate for what I believe are critical initiatives:
- Create a sustainable workforce to meet the future competency and quantity needs of the profession to serve our patients and communities.
- Ensure the safety of expanded care deliveries, in-home medical services, and virtual care through pharmacist-led partnerships with nontraditional providers.
- Integrate telemedicine and other innovative digital health strategies, such as artificial intelligence/machine learning, into pharmacy practice allowing for improved population health management and workflow efficiencies and supporting clinicians to practice at the top of their license.
- Mitigate business strategies threatening the access and distribution of medications (including 340B programs, site-of-care restrictions, and white bagging) and ensure safe medication use for all patients.
- Foster pharmacy workforce diversity to closely reflect the patient populations served.
Together, through our bold and persistent actions, we can face and overcome these challenges!
It is an honor to be slated, and it would be a privilege to serve on the ASHP Board.
