Leading Persuasively During Crisis

Leaders are called on to offer insight and assistance in a variety of settings, but in no setting is good leadership more important than in the midst of crisis. Good leaders know how to share their ideas not only with a friendly audience, but also in the company of skeptics or critics. And those who wish to become leaders recognize that their performance in crisis may often open the door to additional leadership opportunities. In this interactive session, we will explore some of the tools of persuasion leaders should develop to make them more effective in crisis. Specifically, we will address the persuasion of different audiences in crisis management, including in a legal crisis. We will next discuss how criticism and feedback can be an effective leadership tool. And finally, we will evaluate how to use persuasive language to gain leadership credibility even if you lack explicit authority amongst the crisis management team.

At the completion of this activity, the participant will be able to:

  1. Identify tools for persuasion in crisis settings.
  2. Assess the role of critical feedback for an academic leadership team.
  3. Analyze the unique types of crisis communication that is persuasive to different audiences.

Accelerating Adoption of the Pharmacists’ Patient Care Process Across Curricula

This series of two sessions will provide a dynamic setting for participants to engage in a national effort to integrate the pharmacists patient care process into Pharm.D. curricula. This session will facilitate a dialogue around the value of establishing consistency in student learning outcomes associated with the application of this process as well as the importance of ensuring that the patient care process is a core component of all curricula and integrated throughout all years. Schools participating in the AACP PPCP Catalyst effort or any school wishing to engage in this session are encouraged (not required) to bring at least two representatives from their school to learn from the experiences of others and engage in structured planning strategies for local action. These sessions, designed with an “all teach, all learn” framework, will serve to foster a community of learning among schools, celebrate successes from the community, inspire new ideas, allow flexibility for individual participants to explore specific areas of interest, create space for school-specific planning, and allow participants to recognize the local and national influence of the PPCP Catalyst effort.

Accelerating Adoption of the Pharmacists’ Patient Care Process Across Curricula

This series of two sessions will provide a dynamic setting for participants to engage in a national effort to integrate the pharmacists patient care process into PharmD curricula.  This session will facilitate a dialogue around the value of establishing consistency in student learning outcomes associated with the application of this process as well as the importance of ensuring that the patient care process is a core component of all curricula and integrated throughout all years.  Schools participating in the AACP PPCP Catalyst effort or any School wishing to engage in this session are encouraged (not required) to bring at least two representatives from their school to learn from the experiences of others and engage in structured planning strategies for local action.  These sessions, designed with an “all teach, all learn” framework, will serve to foster a community of learning among schools, celebrate successes from the community, inspire new ideas, allow flexibility for individual participants to explore specific areas of interest, create space for school-specific planning, and allow participants to recognize the local and national influence of the PPCP Catalyst effort.

Increasing Work-Life Balance + Harmony

Managing it all is difficult: work, friends, family, self-care. Yet we think of “work-life balance” as the gold standard for a good life and we wonder, strive, and even frustrate ourselves in an effort to achieve it. That doesn’t sound like the good life to me. This presentation will help attendees think about work-life balance issues and offer scientifically-informed tools and strategies to get more harmony across all parts of life.

Fee: $265; $75 with a full INterim Meeting registration. Pre-registration required; registration includes lunch, two beverage breaks, and Tuesday morning’s sessions.

During 2016, all pharmacy schools transitioned from applying ACPE’s Standards 2007 to applying Standards 2016 to their programs. Accreditation of professional degree programs in pharmacy provides a national basis for quality assurance. ACPE expects that programs will exceed the standards through initiatives to ensure continuous quality improvement documented in their own strategic plans. The program is intended for individuals to understand why we assess our own strategic plans, what metrics are related to the new ACPE Standards 2016, and learn what other units are doing to meet the new requirements. The audience will also engage with presenters on ways to evaluate and review existing strategic plan metrics within their college, ways of engaging stakeholders in the process, and an opportunity to learn and discuss available tools for presenting and evaluating metrics.

As faculty consider opportunities and think about becoming a dean of a school of pharmacy, this presentation provides an opportunity to hear from new deans who have recently made that transition. This presentation is intended to be interactive to allow participants to engage with these “new” deans and learn what had they wished they had known before starting the position, what they learned they didn’t know, and reflecting on what they should have known.
