Advocacy and Representation

Advocacy

Healthcare is changing. Every day decisions are made which could impact your profession, career and livelihood. There is no way you can possibly care for your patients and make sure your voice is heard. This is where membership in the WSPA is so crucial. Whether the issue is the important role of the pharmacist on the healthcare team or rules and regulations that are excessive and unnecessary, the WSPA Board of Directors and staff advocate for pharmacists and pharmacy technicians as valuable members on the healthcare team in multidisciplinary, public and legislative arenas including the:

  • Washington Patient Safety Coalition
  • Washington State Board of Pharmacy
  • Washington State Handling of Hazardous Drugs Advisory Committee
  • Immunization Action Coalition of Washington
  • Public Health Emergency Preparedness and Response (PHEPR) Joint Advisory Committee
  • Washington Asthma Program
  • HealthPACT
  • Allies Against Asthma Steering Committee
  • Medicaid Audit Pharmacy Task Force
  • Attorney General's Prescription Drug Task Force
  • Alliance for Patient Medication Safety
