New Year, New Look

Thursday, December 13, 2018  

Alexandria, Virginia—The American Society of Consultant Pharmacists (ASCP) will change the name of its peer-reviewed journal from The Consultant Pharmacist to The Senior Care Pharmacist (ISSN 2639-9636, online ISSN 2639-9644) as of January 2019. The new name reflects ASCP's outreach to clinicians and pharmacists caring for older adults in all settings—the community as well as long-term care and assisted living facilities.

The design of the journal will also be refreshed, and the new cover will feature portraits of older adults around the world who have a personal connection to ASCP, its members, or its staff. In addition, beginning in 2019, ASCP will merge the July/August and the November/December issues, and ASCP is will pilot new audio podcasts to accompany select journal articles, which will offer members and readers the opportunity to gain continuing education credits for reading journal articles and listening to the accompanying author interviews.

ASCP plans to continue to fill each issue with information that will advance the knowledge of senior care pharmacy and further the mission of the society: to empower pharmacists to promote healthy aging through the appropriate use of medications.
