The high regard given to superheroes is readily apparent to anyone who has gone to the movies of late or spends time with young children. Stalwarts, such as Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, and Captain America, remain as popular as ever. While these imaginary characters can continue to delight us well past childhood, as we grow into our professional lives, the idea of a superhero can connote something rather different.
Here at Pharmacy Purchasing & Products, we want to acknowledge a particular set of pharmacy leaders whom we consider superheroes: Those who fill out our surveys.
Dedicated readers of PP&P have been participating in our surveys for years now, thus producing the valuable and impactful benchmarking data released in the pages of PP&P and online. These results are available throughout the year in the effort to keep you up-to-date on pharmacy trends, from current USP <800> compliance rates to the number of health system pharmacies operating specialty pharmacies.
That said, these surveys are only successful through your participation, and doing so makes you superheroes in our eyes and in those of your colleagues and peers. We are grateful for the time you take to participate given the busy and complex nature of pharmacy management. With this in mind, we would like to thank you with a small token: Our own Survey Superhero.
If you have filled out one of our surveys this year, please come visit our booth (#717) at the ASHP Midyear in Anaheim so we can thank you and give you your own survey superhero. Your dedication to the advancement of pharmacy practice is not lost on us and we hope to thank you in person.
All the best,
R. Mitchell Halvorsen
