Professional Affairs Committee

AACP Article

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 subsequent committees, task forces, commissions, or other groups.

The 2017–2018 Professional Affairs Committee will:

  1. Develop a self-reflection/self-assessment tool for pharmacy faculty and preceptors to allow them to assess their capability and confidence with CAPE, the Pharmacist Patient Care Process and Entrustable Professional Activities (EPAs) for New Pharmacy Graduates; and
  2. Create a plan for AACP to utilize in the development of preceptor continuing education and training programs.
