    Top 7 New Year’s Resolutions for Pharmacists

    We asked pharmacists from all over the country what resolutions pharmacists should make in 2018.



    We resolve:

    • To continue our proactive and assertive efforts on drug shortages with Congress, the FDA, and other stakeholders to find solutions that prevent patient harm and the wasting of valuable health-care resources that are caused by drug shortages.
    • To expand access to the patient care services of pharmacists by amending the Social Security Act to recognize pharmacists as Medicare Part B providers.
    • To further elevate and professionalize the pharmacy technician workforce — and advance pharmacy practice — through the newly launched ASHP Pharmacy Technician Forum
    • To continue to advocate for solutions to skyrocketing drug prices through our leadership on the steering committee of the Campaign for Sustainable Rx Pricing
    • To improve patient care by enhancing the well-being and resilience of pharmacists, student pharmacists, and pharmacy technicians through ASHP’s leadership as a sponsoring organization of the National Academy of Medicine’s Action Collaborative on Clinician Well-Being and Resilience.
    • To continue to combat the opioid abuse epidemic through advocacy, education, and the leadership of pharmacists on interprofessional patient care teams providing comprehensive medication therapy management.
