Best Practices: oPtimizing HeAlth-Related outcoMes (PHARM)
If PHARMACY is a part of who you are, then the 2019 NCAP Annual Convention is a Must Be There Event for you! Regardless of where you work, your practice setting, or whether you are a pharmacist, technician, student pharmacist, or other pharmacy advocate, there is something relevant for you at the Convention this year.
Our theme, "Best Practices," is sure to resonate, motivate, and empower those who attend. This year for the first time we are offering both the NACDS Point-of-Care Certificate Program and an interactive forum with the Pharmacy Directors for the new Medicaid Managed Care Organizations. In addition, last year at the convention the attendees identified top issues for the profession. These issues included medical cannabis, telepharmacy, and best practices including collaborative practice opportunities. The program for the convention will deliver all of these and more, including favorites such as round table discussions, OTC Jeopardy, and our annual poster session. Back this year, by popular demand, will be clinical pearls, the silent auction, the Health-Systems leadership forum, and a new opening networking kickoff, as well as a few extra surprises!
On behalf of the NCAP Board of Directors and Staff, we look forward to welcoming you to the "Twin City" in September for the 2019 NCAP Annual Convention!
