The 2019–2020 committee will:

  1. Extend the work of the 2018-19 Argus Commission by identifying promising practices in academic-practice partnerships that are accelerating the transformation of a workforce prepared to assume responsibility for society's medication use needs in 2030.
  2. Identify the mechanisms through which professional pharmacy organizations are supporting workforce development and consider opportunities for individual schools and/or AACP to influence these efforts to collaborate with these entities.
  3. Determine the role AACP should play in supporting schools in efforts to grow their influence in workforce development.
  4. Define strategies and draft an action plan for AACP's role in supporting school engagement in driving workforce development with respect to the knowledge and skills required to accelerate practice transformation.
