While the size and scope of hospital pharmacies across the country vary significantly, most hospital pharmacy hierarchies comprise multiple managers and specialized staff given supervisory and decision-making responsibilities, in addition to the director. As future pharmacy leaders develop the managerial skill sets indicative of career growth, we encourage all pharmacy directors to sign up their managers and supervisors for Pharmacy Purchasing & Products.
PP&P is free to all hospital pharmacy professionals, and while its content tends to speak to director-level practitioners, exposing those who hope to someday step into a director’s role to these management concepts will prove beneficial in the long run.
It is entirely reasonable to feel at times as though your pharmacy is practicing in a bubble. As today’s clinical pharmacies incorporate novel technologies and prescient methodologies, many practitioners may feel alone on the frontier. This is why the concept of peer-to-peer information sharing is so critical to the mission of PP&P. As such, we work with pharmacists at all levels of practice, from the unit to the C suite. While we hope our peer-to-peer content reaches all hospital pharmacy directors, we also want to speak to the future leaders.
To sign up your future leaders for a free PP&P subscription, please visit pppmag.com/subscribe. It only takes a few moments and those moments will be well spent.
All the best,
R. Mitchell Halvorsen
