Educating policy makers is important so policy development is evidence-based and recognizes the contributions, current and potential, academic pharmacy and the pharmacy profession can make to the policy development process. Support for any agenda is best accomplished through ongoing relationship development between interested parties. The following pages provide AACP advocates with a breadth of resources to enhance your education activities, provide a solid evidence-base for your advocacy and strengthen your relationships with policy makers.
Advocacy Alerts are shared via email to AACP members through the Council of Faculty and Council of Deans. To help build AACP's advocacy capacity, update your member profile and select the appropriate Council.
