APhA-ASP 2013 Proposed Resolutions 2013.1 – Expanding Immunization Privileges for Pharmacists and Student Pharmacists

1. APhA-ASP encourages all health care professionals who administer immunizations, to have realtime and bi-directional access to the Immunization Information System (IIS) (formerly the vaccine/ immunization registry) and patient electronic health records (EHRs). Furthermore, immunization providers should regularly and routinely update the IIS and EHRs to meet both community public health and patient-specific needs.

2. APhA-ASP encourages pharmacy stakeholders to promote legislative efforts that would enable pharmacists and student pharmacists to administer all CDC-recommended immunizations per protocol and address community-specific needs regarding patient age restrictions.

2013.2 – Development of an Effective and Financially Viable Care Transitions Model

1. APhA-ASP encourages pharmacists, student pharmacists, and other health care professionals to develop a team-based care transitions model that enhances the coordination of care, strengthens the relationship among all health care providers, reduces hospital readmission rates, and improves patient outcomes.

2. APhA-ASP encourages pharmacists, student pharmacists, and care transitions stakeholders to work with health-systems, employers, and third party payors to develop and implement a sustainable and financially viable payment model for all members of the care transitions team.

This year, the APhA-ASP Resolutions Committee noted that several proposals from the Midyear Regional Meetings were related to topics that are already addressed in APhA-ASP’s Resolutions Book. During their deliberations, the Committee did not see a need to introduce new proposed resolutions on these topics. However, the Committee felt strongly that several topics should be given deliberate consideration by the Academy and APhA-ASP Policy Standing Committee during 2013-2014. Therefore, the APhA-ASP Resolutions Committee would like to make the following motions for the APhAASP House of Delegates to discuss and debate. Motion 2013.3 – Compounding Motion 2013.4 – P  harmacists as Providers: Prescriptive Authority, Compensation, and Behind-the-Counter Class Motion 2013.5 – Post Graduate Training Opportunities

Please see the Final Report of the APhA-ASP Resolutions Committee for further detail on each of these motions. The report can be found on the APhA2013 Annual Meeting website.
