Professional Affairs Committee 

According to the Bylaws of AACP, the Professional Affairs Committee is to study issues associated with the professional practice as they relate to pharmaceutical education, and to establish and improve working relationships with all other organizations in the field of health affairs. The Committee is also encouraged to address related agenda items relevant to its Bylaws charge and to identify issues for consideration by susequent committees, task forces, commissions, or other groups.

The 2014-15 Professional Affairs Committee will study several critical issues in the changing health care environment as they relate to experiential education. They will examine the contributions of experiential education, which encompasses up to 30% of the student pharmacists professional academic experience to the development of “practice-ready” pharmacy school graduates who are educated for current and future practice. 

Professional Affairs Committee accompanying factors related to access, affordability (value), and accountability include:

  • Access: How can schools/colleges of pharmacy work to identify exemplary sites and preceptors in traditional and new/evolving practice model settings? Examination of new practice models, such as  pharmacists in the medical home model and in team-based care models; interprofessional activities; navigating the dynamic and rapid changes in all practice sites; the changing paradigm in many settings.   
  • Affordability: What value do student pharmacists provide to the experiential sites in their delivery of patient care products and services? What value-based accountabilities of the student to the site/preceptor can and should be developed? What valued-based accountabilities of the site/preceptor can and should be developed?
  • Accountability: How will the academy ensure graduates are practice ready for current and future models of care? What are the essential elements of successful relationships with practice sites that support the students in their development of professional responsibilities? What are the essential elements of student accountability to their practice sites?  How do we prepare students to align their professional practice with the JCPP Consensus Practice Model? What set of assessment criteria can and should be developed to ensure the student is aligning their professional practice with the JCPP Consensus Practice Model?
