Join ASCP as we celebrate National Consultant Pharmacist Week 2016!
October 11, 2016: Meet the New ASCP.com
Starting October 11, explore the new ASCP.com, which will put senior care pharmacist resources and educational tools up front, giving you access to information you need with speed and ease. ASCP members can now search and easily access information within ASCP’s Practice Resource Centers and ASCP’s new Learning Center. For those interested in Certified Geriatric Pharmacist (CGP) certification or recertification, the Learning Center features 50 hours of CGP exam preparation and over 30 recertification credit hours. Tutorials to help you learn more about the new site are available at ASCP.com.
October 13, 2016: Virtual Lobby Day
Pharmacists deliver clinical services with every prescription they dispense; however they are not recognized as providers under Medicare. We need to advance the Pharmacy and Medically Underserved Areas Enhancement Act (S.R.314/H.R. 592) granting pharmacists Medicare provider status.
Taking action is easy. On October 13, log on to ASCP's new action center (ascp.com/actioncenter), enter your zip code, and personalize our pre-populated letter. Then the online action center will send your letter to your representatives and senators either thanking them for supporting provider status, or encouraging them to sign on. (Don't worry, we will keep track of who gets thanked and who gets nudged.)
