Problems

    pharmacists
  • Volunteer-pharmacist pool is expected to increase
    as baby-boomer pharmacists retire

  • Youth Counseling Drug Abuse, STDs
  • Elder Outreach Nursing Home Activities
  • Active Lifestyle/Diet Modification Activities

A Partnership to Encourage Pharmacist Volunteerism
  • The PHS PharmPAC
  • The PHS Offers Health care credibility, a seal
    of approval that is well known to all
  • The PHS can offer expertise
  • A major Pharmacy Association
  • Can reach a wide audience through journals,
    websites, and meetings
  • A forum for discussion

10
Message
  • The Public Health Working Group in conjunction
    with a pharmaceutical organization will develop a
    message for a pharmacy publication.
  • The message will encourage pharmacist
    volunteerism in public health-related areas
  • The message will solicit stories about
    pharmacists who have volunteered in their
    community

11
Regular Column
  • In a regular follow-up column, the best stories
    of pharmacist volunteerism can be held up to
    encourage further volunteer efforts
  • The column can be a place to spotlight ideas for
    public health interventions
  • The column can be a place to encourage subgroups
    of pharmacists, e.g., retirees
  • The column can be used to encourage the formation
    of groups of pharmacists to come together to
    address specific Public Health areas

12
The Future
  • The working group envisions the grass-roots
    coalescence of pharmacists into groups to address
    specific public health problems
  • The working group envisions future research to
    determine where pharmacists now volunteer and
    where pharmacists can make the greatest impact
    with volunteer efforts

13
Summary
  • The Public Health Working Group sees potential in
    pharmacists volunteer efforts at local and
    national levels
  • The Working Group is proposing partnering with a
    major pharmaceutical group, e.g., ASHP or APhA to
    encourage pharmacist volunteerism
  • The Working Group will send this proposal to the
    PharmPAC for consideration to go forward
