Advocate for Pharmacy
Advocating on behalf of your profession and contributing at a local level can accomplish great things. The profession of pharmacy faces opposition, and as a health care provider, it's important for you to share your thoughts on key pharmacy issues and educate elected officials on what you do, what needs to happen for you to continue providing safe and effective patient care, and why certain pieces of legislation will have a positive or negative impact on your practice.
Developing personal relationships with legislators and others holding political office; volunteering to work on a candidate’s campaign; inviting a legislator to visit your practice site; and writing letters, sending e-mails and making phone calls to help educate legislators on specific issues are all critical advocacy activities.
