But we want to have a long-term relationship with our international pharmacists, provide them with all of the benefits of ACA membership, but also take into consideration differences in compensation worldwide.”

The International Pharmacist Member category is open to any licensed pharmacist residing outside of the United States or Canada who meets the association’s Practice Standards and has a $100 annual membership fee. Pharmacist members may apply for Fellowship at any time.

UPDATE: Hurricane Maria Impact on ACA | ACVP Annual Conference & Expo

2019-02-15T10:04:28-06:00September 28th, 2017|Categories: News Release|

To our Members and Fellows,

By now everyone is aware of the tragic events caused by Hurricane Maria in the Caribbean and Puerto Rico.  Over a year ago, ACA contracted with the El Conquistador Hotel to host our 2018 ACA|ACVP Annual Conference & Expo.  Due to the damage sustained in the hurricane and the damage to the island’s infrastructure, we have had to make the difficult decision to move our meeting to another location.

We were looking forward to hosting our event in Puerto Rico and build strong relationships with the local pharmacists and technician.  We want to send our thoughts and prayers to our brothers and sisters on the Island, and to let them know that we will be back.  Back to support pharmacy and the people.  For right now, we are encouraging our members who want to do more to help Puerto Rico to donate to organizations such as One America AppealUnidos Por Puerto Rico or  Voices for Puerto Rico. Animal welfare organizations assisting shelters and animals impacted by Hurricane Maria include the Humane Society of the United States and Wings of Rescue.

We will be announcing a new venue for the 2018 ACA|ACVP Annual Conference & Expo in the next few days.  Thank all of you for your patience and your support for those affected by Maria.  Our event will still be special, with outstanding speakers, quality vendors, and great fellowship.  Please be on the lookout for our announcement and feel free to call the office (901-383-8119) if we can assist you in any way.

Thank you,

Don DowningThe American College of Apothecaries presented the 2016-17 Albert E. Rosica, Jr. Memorial Award to Don Downing of Seattle, Washington at the College’s 2017 Fall Pharmacy Conference at the Loews Philadelphia Hotel. The award, established in memory of Albert E. Rosica, Jr., a Past President of ACA, is presented each year to a pharmacy practitioner for his or her contributions to pharmacy education through participation in pharmacy clerkship programs, serving on various college committees, teaching, working with the alumni association, and making other contributions to academic programs.

While there, he joined the Washington School of Pharmacy faculty and later opened the first pharmacy in Bonney Lake and a community pharmacy in Federal Way. He continues to consult with and develop pharmacy services for various Native American tribes.

Peggy Soule Odegard, Associate Dean of the School of Pharmacy at the University of Washington, commended Downing’s dedication to pharmacy. “Don exemplifies the meaning of teaching by example and is a major contributor to the professional development of our pharmacy graduates…. He embodies a service attitude for his students and peers, kindly nudging each of us to become involved to improve access to services for those who are less fortunate. He reaches out with regular service to communities both locally and throughout the world to help those in need, modeling compassionate care for his students and often facilitating and advocating for necessary change to reduce disparities during his visits.”

Downing developed the nation’s first pharmacist-provided emergency contraception program and the first pharmacist-initiated ongoing hormonal contraception services. He also helped lead the effort in the 1990s to educate and certify pharmacists in Washington state and numerous other states to provide flu shots and other vaccines.  Downing has worked on pharmacy-care legislation in 39 states, devoting much of his energy to changing the public’s perception of pharmacists.

As a college of pharmacy faculty member and residency program director, Nathan works to develop compassionate, confident, clinical providers of advanced patient care services in a community pharmacy setting. He has been an advocate for all Community Pharmacy Practice Residencies, cultivating innovative practice settings, and outcomes from those practices, and currently serves as a guest surveyor for ASHP Accreditation Services.

Through his role as a site preceptor for an on-campus community pharmacy, Nathan supports the students’ involvement in patient care projects and educational offerings, including telephonic Medication Therapy Management Services for the Area Agency on Aging.

Within his profession, he serves as a board member of the Texas Pharmacy Association, and as a committee member in organizations such as APhA, NCPA, and ASHP, and as the College of Pharmacy’s representative to the Pharmacy Quality Alliance (PQA). In 2016 he was presented with the Bowl of Hygeia Award for outstanding community service by the Texas Pharmacy Association.

As an ACA Fellow, our recipient has served the College through roles on multiple committees, including membership and programs, as well as conducting admissions interviews.

Most notably, Nathan has been a vital member of our compounding training faculty.

He also regularly conducts on-site compounding training for ACA across the US and in Canada.

The award criterion was established to ensure that the individual chosen to receive the award has contributed valued accomplishments, and exhibits enthusiasm and eagerness. Examples of the criterion include involvement in the areas of membership recruitment, committee involvement, and willingness to serve the College in any area that is needed. Deserving nominees must also have spent time serving his/her own community, promoting community pharmacy through mentoring, entrepreneurship and education.

This year’s truly recipient embodies all of those criteria, especially in the field of education as he has dedicated himself to the promotion of community pharmacy and the continued development of pharmacy professionals. Congratulations, Dr. Pope.

 

ACA Launches Clinical Program for Pharmacists to Address PPI Overuse

2018-10-11T12:55:01-05:00November 21st, 2016|Categories: News Release|

Ditch Your PPI Endorsed Local PharmacyThe American College of Apothecaries and DitchYourPPI.com have launched a continuing education program designed to train pharmacists in working with physicians and other health care providers to provide a medication tapering system for patients taking prescription and over the counter Proton Pump Inhibitors (PPIs).

“Thousands of patients are “stuck” on acid reflux medication, unable to stop taking their heartburn pill,” said Juan Lopez, PharmD, Program Director of DitchYourPPI.com. “These patients are at risk of long-term negative side effects from chronic acid suppression therapy.” Lopez adds that most PPIs are recommended for only 4 to 8 weeks of therapy, but patients often find themselves dependent on these drugs for years.

To address the overuse of PPIs and assist patients in discontinuing them without experiencing rebound acid reflux, Lopez developed the protocol used by Ditch Your PPI. A collaboration between pharmacist and physician, Ditch Your PPI creates a personalized program that includes counseling, nutrition, and a flexible taper schedule to meet the patient’s unique and specific needs.

“When we heard Juan present about Ditch Your PPI at The Compounders Group meeting over the summer, we knew that we wanted to bring it our Fellows and members,” said Donnie Calhoun, CEO and Executive Vice-President of the American College of Apothecaries. “This program is a win-win for our patients and pharmacists as independent pharmacies increase their consultation, nutrition, and wellness services.”

The ACA “Ditch Your PPI” Pharmacy Accreditation Program consists of 5.5 contact hours of continuing education on the pharmacology, nutritional requirements, development and marketing of a patient care program. Participants also receive a “Ditch Your PPI” Toolkit and a one-year listing on www.DitchYourPPI.com as an Endorsed Local Pharmacy Provider.

More information on the ACA “Ditch Your PPI” Pharmacy Accreditation Program can be found at www.acainfo.org/DitchYourPPI.
