Community Pharmacy Practice Standards Open Forum Webinar – recording of webinar now available
The Center for Pharmacy Practice Accreditation (CPPA) recently issued draft Standards for community pharmacy practice accreditation for public comment with a deadline of August 15. The draft Standards were developed by a committee led by the American Pharmacists Association made up of practitioners from diverse practice settings and community pharmacy stakeholder interest. On August 8, 2012, Chair of the APhA Standards Development Committee, Marialice Bennett, conducted an open forum to discuss the draft Standards and solicit feedback from interested parties.
The Center for Pharmacy Practice Accreditation is a partnership between the American Pharmacists Association and the National Association of Boards of Pharmacy. CPPA develops and implements comprehensive programs of pharmacy practice site accreditation, including the promotion, development and maintenance of principles, policies and standards. CPPA offers the general public and users of pharmacy services a means of identifying those pharmacies that satisfy the accreditation criteria and are focused on advancing patient care, safety and quality.
