Federal Pharmacy Leaders Vision: Next Three to Five Years

Description

The 2017 Joint Federal Pharmacy Seminar (JFPS) is an opportunity for Federal Pharmacy senior leaders to update meeting attendees about significant strategic initiatives, challenges faced, and opportunities for collaboration for all branches of the United States Armed Forces, U.S. Coast Guard, Department of Veterans Affairs and the United States Public Health Service.  This session provides an educational venue for pharmacists and pharmacy technicians to hear directly from their chief pharmacy officers on current key issues and future plans that affect their individual organizations and how these issues/plans impact on their local pharmacy operations and patient care services. During this session, federal pharmacists and pharmacy technicians will be informed  on strategic goals, joint and service specific initiatives, policies, and performance measures applicable to their pharmacy practice.  The session concludes with a panel discussion and the opportunity for audience interaction (Q&A) with the federal pharmacy chiefs.
