Social and Administrative Science (SAS) is a group of academic disciplines in pharmacy primarily concerned with the impact of medications on individuals and society. SAS members are educated in disciplines that include, but are not limited to, economics, epidemiology, sociology, psychology, communications, anthropology, public policy, marketing and management. The common goal of SAS members in these distinct disciplines is to explain, predict and understand the impact of drugs on the health of individuals and populations with the ultimate outcome of improving health. The strength of members of the SAS section is the diversity of approaches employed in studying and addressing problems of medication use.
The mission of the Section of Social and Administrative Sciences is:
To encourage in the broadest and most liberal manner the advancement of the teaching methods in the social and administrative sciences; the improvement of the qualification and usefulness of teachers of the social and administrative sciences through the development of high standards of professional ethics and education; and by its professional contacts, reports, discussions, papers, meetings and activities to maintain pharmaceutical education at a high level.
