ASCP is acknowledged as the leading organization for pharmacists who provide drug therapy management services and medication distribution to older adults and others with chronic illness. ASCP is home to professionals recognized and valued for their role in improving quality of care and quality of life for America’s seniors wherever they reside. What do you get as an ASCP member? Here is a list of ASCP's top membership benefits:
The monthly peer-reviewed journal of ASCP is dedicated exclusively to the medication needs of the elderly in all settings, including nursing homes, assisted living facilities, hospice, ambulatory care and within local communities.
With the health and safety of millions of older people on the line, the need for a comprehensive, reliable repository of vital, clinical information is essential.
Connect with colleagues at the ASCP annual meeting, Spring Conference + Exhibition, or select regional and chapter events to share experiences, address similar challenges and locate job opportunities. ASCP speakers have proven records of effectiveness, professionalism and expertise. They share relevant knowledge you can apply to your practice immediately. Or connect right from your desktop through ASCP’s LinkedIn and Facebook fanpage and ASCP’s email discussion groups.
As a member, you have exclusive access to the extensive "member only" areas of the ASCP Web site where the latest news, information, and resources for consultant pharmacists is available 24/7/365. ASCP makes it easy for members get the inside track and stay on top of what is going on -- anytime, anywhere.
With the sheer volume of news and information available today, it's important that members be able to cut through the clutter and find what they need quickly and easily. ASCP offers one enewsletter -- ASCP NOW -- to make sure its membership is not only informed of what's happening, but also that content is selected, framed and presented in a context that makes it relevant to them.
Tough issues demand tough stands and no organization better represents the views of consulting pharmacists than ASCP. Be it at the federal level where matters of national importance are decided, or at the state level where local issues take center stage, ASCP is continually on the job, taking stock of the issues, formulating positions, articulating our members' views and advocating for their best interests.
When it comes to compliance issues, there is no better resource than ASCP. At a time when mistakes or oversights can result in extremely serious consequences, it is incumbent on all parties to know and understand their duties and responsibilities.
Learning should be a life-long endeavor and a never-ending quest. That's why ASCP makes every effort to ensure its members have the largest selection and best educational opportunities available to make the most of their professional careers.
