Fostering Women Leaders in a Knowledge Café

My first week (albeit an abbreviated week) at ASHP headquarters provided many lessons.  Living in Hawaii’s 80 degree sunny weather for most of my life, I did a lot of research before my 11hr flight to the DC area.  I was mentally preparing myself for 30-40° weather, little did I know I would arrive in the midst of winter storms bringing the coldest temperatures in MD since last winter.

(Written by Allie Sturm*) As little "L" (every pharmacist) and big "L" (formal) leaders, there is constant pressure to always be your best. How do we make sure we are being our best selves every day for our employees, colleagues, patients, and loved ones? In

Ever since I entered pharmacy school, I have continued to hear about the value of extracurricular activities. Most of us are aware of the importance of getting involved throughout our training and as new practitioners. Not only does it help develop our extracurricular education and leadership skills, it also prepares us to manage a well-balanced career.

A little less than 8 years ago, I started out wide-eyed and naïve struggling to master the top 200 drugs during pharmacy school. My challenges today are new drug approvals, those on the horizon in drug development, and the increasing use of off-label therapies. Pharmacy and medicine are continuously evolving disciplines where conflicting thoughts occur of reveling in the progress of the past to identify directions for the future, while also simultaneously being dissatisfied with the status quo to help advance treatment paradigms and outcomes. At times, even during the course of graduate studies, certain disease state algorithms have changed from when you learned it to the time your professors are teaching those a year behind you depending on the timing of drug discoveries, landmark trials, and/or new guideline releases.

Many of us began our journey with ASHP as pharmacy students involved in our school’s Student Society of Health-system Pharmacy (SSHP).

Congratulations!

As a final year pharmacy student last year, I was somewhat overwhelmed with the residency application process.  Letters of intent, The Midyear and the Residency Showcase, and hearing from some of my hopeful residency programs for an interview while being turned down from others, all made for an exciting and anxious period of time for myself and my career.  I was fortunate to receive several interview opportunities and was Matched on that fateful day to a great program.

My current rotation is a bit of a change from pharmacy practice; I’m on a teaching rotation at the pharmacy school. It is interesting to see all the work that goes into each class behind the scenes. Even simple things, like labeling saline vials with lot numbers and expiration dates for vaccine injection practice, take time. Writing multiple-choice questions was more challenging than I expected. It took several minutes to come up with each well-balanced answer choice that wouldn’t give the answer away. I had the opportunity to teach SOAP notes to 2

(Written by Allie Sturm*) With the rapidly changing landscapes in industries from healthcare to technology, experienced leaders face questions, such as “will my knowledge and skills become obsolete and irrelevant?” “How will I keep up?” Seasoned pharmacy leaders moving into leadership roles outside of pharmacy likely ask themselves, “how can I be at my best when I know very little about this area?” Liz Wiseman, author of

I was privileged to attend the Informatics Institute at the ASHP Summer Meeting in Las Vegas. Let me first assert that, as an experienced informaticist, this programming was some of the most advanced, and most useful that I have experienced. Please join me in congratulating ASHP and the Section on Pharmacy Informatics and Technology for an excellent series of sessions.

I find that all too often discussions seem to confuse the concept of leadership with the concept of management. Leadership resources often seem to focus on what are really management issues. We manage processes and lead people. Recently during a meeting I heard someone offer this simple explanation of this simple philosophy of the culture and values of their business and it struck a chord with me. In one simple expression captures the essence of the difference between leadership and management.

Sara White recently posted a blog discussing the importance of finding the “right” work/life balance. This is an important struggle for all pharmacists, and especially for new practitioners. With many new practitioners now taking on the excitement and challenge of post graduate training, the transition into practice after training can be a challenge. School is over. Residency completed. First job after residency attained. What’s next? Practicing as a pharmacist after residency is just as different from residency as school was before it.

Happy New Year! As we enter 2015 we can reflect on the success we had with last year’s introduction of pharmacists’ provider status legislation, H.R. 4190. This legislation, which enjoyed great support by both Republicans and Democrats, would amend the Social Security Act to recognize pharmacists as Medicare Part B providers working within their state scopes of practice in the large number of medically underserved areas—both urban and rural—throughout the United States.

During the last three ASHP Midyear meetings, I’ve had the great opportunity to visit with many of my colleagues about the important issue of accreditation for pharmacy practice in my role as executive director of the Center for Pharmacy Practice Accreditation (CPPA). I bet you’re thinking that these must have been some short conversations! But to me, accreditation is one of the most exciting innovations in pharmacy today. That’s because accreditation is not an “add-on” to everything we do every day. Rather, it’s all about how we deliver care to our patients.

I wasn't always a good listener. In fact, I've spent a substantial chunk of my time on this planet speaking quite a lot, listening very little, and wondering why no one ever listened to me. It was my clinic patients who turned me on to the realization that holistic wellness includes the need to feel understood. I began incorporating this into patient visits: affirm what is good and recognize that other people see the world through their own perspective, which is different from my perspective, and which
