About the Collaborative
The ACT Pharmacy Collaborative is an operational learning and ACTing collaborative between schools/colleges of pharmacy and clinically integrated networks of community-based pharmacies.
The ACT Pharmacy Collaborative will:
Unite schools/colleges of pharmacy and pharmacist leaders nationwide with a common focus to transform community-based pharmacy practice.
Mobilize stakeholders and resources to support and facilitate implementation of community-based pharmacy care.
Amplify the development and implementation of sustainable community-based pharmacy care delivery.
The ACT Pharmacy Collaborative has been designed as a direct result of the input and interest expressed by CPESN luminaries and faculty at schools/colleges of pharmacy.
Through the grant, we were able to hold an initial focus group of 14 faculty and 14 CPESN luminaries representing 14 states to begin the development of a “Blueprint for Successful Partnerships” to Support Community Pharmacy Practice Transformation nationally. Through the CPESN Annual Meeting in April 2019, we were able to obtain input from over 80 community pharmacists/owners nationwide regarding their interest and goals in working with schools/colleges of pharmacy. In June 2019, we sought community-focused faculty input on this blueprint, receiving over 70 responses from 104 invited faculty through a nationwide survey. Since the initial focus group, over 110 faculty have expressed interest from 66 schools/colleges of pharmacy in 33 states nationwide.
Support the transformation of community-based pharmacy practice from a product-based care model to a community-based pharmacy care delivery model
