AHA Appoints Pharmacist to Health Professions Committee
The multidisciplinary committee, she said, provides AHA with input and advice on a broad assortment of topics having an impact on clinical administration or implications for health professions and their educational programs. At her first committee meeting, she said the group discussed a variety of topics, including smallpox vaccination, medical professionalism, and the changing environment for physicians.
Shane said her appointment to the committee will give her the opportunity to voice a pharmacist's perspective and that of a health professional at a large community teaching hospital.
Other committee members hail from medicine, nursing, and health care administration, with Shane as the only pharmacist.
