Choose one KEY ISSUE as chosen by ASHP and do some background research and learning on the topic.


The pharmacy profession is facing a multitude of opportunities and challenges in 2023. For example, ASHP is tracking a myriad of Key Issues on the federal and state levels ( (Links to an external site.)) pushing to advance and reinforce the profession, including

  • 340B
  • Drug Pricing
  • Drug Shortages
  • Health Disparities
  • Hospital at Home
  • Opioids
  • Other Issues
  • Provider Status
  • Residency Funding
  • White Bagging

Legislatively, in FL, the definition of the “Practice of the Profession of Pharmacy,” (see 465.003(13)) dictates the scope of practice and authority for licensed pharmacists in the State. Although this is an operable definition, it is constantly being expanded and may be problematic/self-limiting in certain regards.
