ASHP, together with five other healthcare organizations, on November 9 sent a letter to leaders of the House Energy and Commerce Subcommittee on Oversight and Investigations asking Congress to take immediate action to address the public health crisis caused by persistent shortages of critical medications. In the letter, the healthcare organizations ask Congress to examine several questions to address the underlying causes of shortages. The signers also participated in a meeting at ASHP headquarters on November 6 to identify new opportunities to address the ongoing patient-care challenges associated with drug product shortages.
 
There are several resources available on the ASHP website that members can access: 
The PSHP legislative committee is monitoring this issue and will contact the membership with updated information as is becomes available.
