The Twelve Days of Christmas

If you’re like me, you can never remember all of the words to this song. Is it 10 maids a milking or 10 drummers drumming? I just know at the end, there’s a partridge in a pear tree.

Well, it is the holiday season, and as 2013 draws to a close, I thought I would reinvent this classic as a way of sharing with you some of the ASHP Foundation’s work accomplished this year. Here is “The Twelve Days of Christmas, by the ASHP Foundation”:

On the twelfth day of Christmas, the ASHP Foundation gave to you:

Twelve icons of health-system pharmacy who visited residency programs as part of the Visiting Leaders Program.
Eleven leadership development opportunities for every stage of the health-system pharmacy career and varied in time and financial commitment.

Ten recommendations from an expert consensus panel addressing insulin-use safety.

Nine truly inspiring awardees from our Literature Awards, Pharmacy Residency Excellence Awards and Award for Excellence in Medication-Use Safety programs.

Eight grants to state affiliates who held PPMI Workshops in 2013.

Seven essential free resources in the online tool kit, Engaging the C-Suite to Advance Pharmacy Practice.

Six research grant programs that provide evidence that supports the PPMI and drives transformation for pharmacy practice.

Five years of offering the Pharmacy Residency Expansion Grant Program.

Four free leadersEDGE webinars.

Three levels of a Pain and Palliative Care Traineeship–the first two are online and free!

Two Pharmacy Forecast Reports, and

One Drug Therapy Management Complexity Score Index.

The ASHP Foundation will continue to develop and fund programs to help you succeed–and we want to hear from you regarding whatever those needs are.

And now, I would like to make an appeal to you: As 2013 draws to a close, if you are thinking about making a holiday donation, please consider giving to the ASHP Foundation. From now through December 31st, all donations received from individuals will be matched dollar for dollar through the generous support from Novo Nordisk. No amount is too small, and every gift helps us to continue our work to transform health-system pharmacy and help pharmacists just like you.

Happy Holidays!
