Welcome to the Web site for the American Society of Consultant Pharmacists (ASCP). ASCP is the professional society devoted to promoting appropriate use of medicines for all older persons.
AARP recently re-published the article "The Pharmacist Who Says No to Drugs." The article features Dr. Armon Neel, a pharmacist who specializes in helping older adults manage their medicines. This Web page is intended to help provide you with additional information and resources.
The American Society of Consultant Pharmacists Foundation offers a Web site with more extensive information for consumers and caregivers about medicines and older adults. Check out The Center for Medicines and Healthy Aging.
A pharmacist with knowledge and skills in the care of older adults can be recognized as a Certified Geriatric Pharmacist by the Commission for Certification in Geriatric Pharmacy. Get more information from the Commission for Certification in Geriatric Pharmacy Web site.
If you'd like to learn more about how a senior care pharmacist can assist you, please contact ASCP.
