    The 71st Meeting of the ASHP House of Delegates demonstrated that the development of good policy requires thoughtful consideration, and constructive debate. From the June 2019 House sessions, 18 new policies resulted and one revised statement. Delegate service also includes helping to communicate the outcome of the ASHP policy process to constituents. The new policies, as approved by the House and the Board, are now available in several formats on the ASHP website on the House Actions tile.

    Thanks to the hard work of Sara Fern, CPhT, CSHP's Pharmacy Technician Task Force co-chair, we have been awarded a grant to support projects that promote medication safety and advance the role of pharmacy technicians. The grants were made through PTCB’s new Partnership Funds Program launched in March to support selected projects of the 72 state pharmacy associations that participate in PTCB’s State Associate Program.

    The grant will fund activities in compounded sterile preparation, technician product verification (TPV), and best practices in medication safety. CSHP's Compounded Sterile Preparation Technician (CSPT) workshop will be available to all CT pharmacy technicians.
