The American Society of Health-System Pharmacists (ASHP) Board of Directors have voted to create the ASHP Section of Specialty Pharmacy Practitioners.
According to a Specialty Pharmacy Times report, the new section will support ASHP’s members to deliver exemplary patient care and robust medication therapy management in the specialty pharmacy landscape.
“ASHP is extremely excited about the creation of this important new Section of Specialty Pharmacy Practitioners,” ASHP CEO Paul Abramowitz said in a statement. “We believe that ASHP is the perfect home for all pharmacy practitioners in hospitals and health systems who are interested or engaged in specialty pharmacy, including pharmacy technicians, residents and students.”
Officials will appoint an executive committee for the new section, which is set to begin meeting in fall this year.
