Pharm2Table Summit 2015

How often do we hear that pharmacists, especially community pharmacists, “don’t have a seat at the healthcare table?” We bemoan the fact that our standing in the healthcare universe has declined, and are ever fearful that our profession will be replaced by automation and vending machines. Not the most encouraging thing for Pharm D candidates to hear. Well, we believe that it is time that we become the authors of our own destiny, and that all begins with future community pharmacists. The Pharm2Table Virtual Summit seeks to be the catalyst in developing actionable steps by exposing Pharm D candidates to 3 “tables”: Rebranding our profession, pursing next practices and exploring expanded reimbursement models. Join us for the Pharm2Table Virtual Summit 2015, and get ready to claim your chair.

The table's our goal, but the sky's the limit

I cannot express how excited I amto have the opportunity to help organize the first virtual Pharm2Table Summit! Very early when we began discussing the concept of this event, we made the conscious decision that we would approach this as a “summit” versus a “conference,” and to focus on Pharm D candidates. We want all of our participants to understand that the purpose of Pharm2Table is not to be a platform for a series of talks. Rather, we hope to foster an ecosystem catalyzing tangible, sustained, and meaningful results. It is not the objective of Pharm2Table 2015 to be just a forum for discussing best practices. We are a collaborative environment to helping create “next practices.” I want to personally thank everyone who has expressed support for this concept, is excited about attending, and most importantly is happily invested in being part our profession’s vibrant future. You truly are the future of vibrant community pharmacy. – Pharmacist Jamie, Summit Chair

Topics that Matter

Rallying the future of our profession and discussing how to reach out to those who need our partnerships – that’s what Pharm2Table is all about. From education to clinical practice to professional sustainability to the way we market and talk about ourselves, this summit focuses on the issues that will be the most critical to elevating community pharmacy to its deserving position in the healthcare ecosystem.

Rebranding Pharmacy

Let’s generate excitement and more importantly engagement surrounding rebranding community pharmacy. And by “rebranding,” we don’t mean a fancy logo and cool color scheme. We’ll talk real world examples of how other professions that have been left as outdated and irrelevant have reinvigorated their position in the marketplace.

Provider Programs that Work

Effective and profitable community pharmacy isn’t inevitable nor is it not achievable. We’ll look at successful models that have been implemented in pharmacies of different sizes with varying patient profiles. We’ll have the opportunity to discuss a customized approach to  ensure your future community pharmacy is maximizing profitability by way of providing premium care.

Engagement after Education

It is a travesty to see a disconnect between the practices Pharm D candidates are learning in school and what goes on in the “real world.” A major focus of Pharm2Table will be to start a dialogue of how we can bring these two worlds in alignment through a engagement strategy to recruit practicing community pharmacists as preceptors.
