Patient Care Services - Disease State Management

Diabetes

APhA and the APhA Foundation are partnering with the American Diabetes Association to help you educate your patients about diabetes.

Patient Education - Medication Use

Patient Education Brochures
Brochures and information targeted for educating patients about their medications and the role of the pharmacist

Workplace Issues

Improving the quality of your practice environment is a top priority for APhA. Members have told us that administrative third party payment burdens, additional training, more and new technology, better equipped pharmacy technicians, and additional manpower are some of the biggest challenges faced in practice. Areas of this section provide information that may assist you as you look for ways to solve these challenges in your practice.

Pharmacist Workforce Center
The Pharmacy Manpower Project sponsors the National Demand Index, a monthly report on the state-by-state demand for pharmacists.

Stepping Stone Summits: Pharmacy Technicians (pdf)
In 1992, APhA in collaboration with several other pharmacy organizations, hosted a “Stepping Stones” conference that brought together pharmacists, pharmacy technicians, and technician educators to develop recommendations on how best to utilize, train, educate, and regulate the pharmacy technicians who play a vital role in the practice of pharmacy.


Patient Safety

Pharmacists have a very important role in the prevention of medication errors, from developing safe medication distribution systems to working with patients to assure optimal medication use.

Video PSAs for Patients

The Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality offers a series of three public service announcements to encourage health care consumers to get safer care by using pill cards to track medications, understanding discharge instructions, and inviting patient advocates to appointments.

Medication Safety Reports

The Institute of Medicine has published several landmark reports on Patient Safety:

Organizations

Report a Medication Error

Medication errors can be reported in a voluntary, anonymous format to either of the following organizations

Public Health

Pharmacy professionals have a valuable role in the nation's public health, as one of the most accessible health care providers. This section focuses on important public health-related topics.

Health Literacy

Significant problems can occur when patients are unable to read and/or understand important information about taking medications properly. Assessing a patient's literacy level is an important component in providing medication therapy management services. APhA is a member of the Partnership for Clear Health Communication, a coalition that has developed resources for health care providers and patients to address health literacy issues.

Immunizations

  • Pharmacist Immunization Center - Pharmacists in all 50 states are authorized to administer immunizations under collaborative practice agreements with physicians. Pharmacists in all practice settings also play an important role in educating patients about immunizations. APhA’s Pharmacist Immunization Center contains valuable, up-to-date information about providing immunization services. Visit the Center to learn more about how APhA is positioning pharmacists to excel as immunizers.

Substance Abuse

APhA Pharmacy Recovery Program APhA's Pharmacy Recovery Program, established in 1982, fosters the development and strengthening of state and campus level programs to assist pharmacists and student pharmacists whose competence has been compromised by the disease of chemical dependency or by other causes.

Syringe Disposal

  • Coalition for Safe Community Needle Disposal - The Safe Community Needle Disposal Coalition contains information on proper needle disposal. Improper disposal of used syringes and needles in the trash presents a public health hazard to workers in the waste removal and hotel industries and individuals who may be inadvertently exposed to a used needle.

Quality Initiatives

Delivering high quality medication therapy management and distributive services is important for achieving optimal medication therapy outcomes. Outcomes measures to measure pharmacist and pharmacy performance are emerging in tandem with measures for other health care providers for the care they deliver.
