In November 2016, PSHP received a letter from the Pennsylvania Pharmacist Association (PPA). This letter invited PSHP to explore a collaborative relationship with PPA and discussed the concept of a merger between our organizations. Click here to read it.
Because we are a State Affiliate of ASHP, we reached out to ASHP for their guidance and advice on this issue. As a result of this discussion, the PSHP Board of Directors (BOD) created and approved a Position Statement on “Collaborative Activities with Outside Organizations”. The statement promotes the collaboration with outside organizations in areas where there is a mutual benefit, but is against merging with them. Click here to read it.
We hope that you will read these documents and provide us with your feedback. Submit your comments via the anonymous form below. You may include your name and contact info if you wish, but it is not required. It is also important to consider that this position statement reflects the current thinking of the BOD. We will always be evaluating new opportunities to form relationships that support our mission of advancing the practice of health-system pharmacy in Pennsylvania.
