Booth #16101
California Pharmacists Association (CPhA)

The California Pharmacists Association (CPhA) was founded in 1869 and is the largest state association representing pharmacists. CPhA represents pharmacy professionals from all practice settings. Our mission is to advance the practice of pharmacy for the promotion of health. Our vision statement is a unified pharmacy profession, recognized as preeminent in patient care.

Board of Trustees

according to the CPhA bylaws, adopted in 1970 and amended periodically, the Association is governed by two separate and distinct bodies – a Board of Trustees and a House of Delegates. The bylaws divide authority between these two bodies, assigning responsibility for establishing association policy to the House of Delegates and giving the Board of Trustees responsibility for implementing policy and governing CPhA’s operations.

Members of the Board of Trustees are elected to leadership positions by the membership. It is the job of the Board of Trustees to strategically and fiscally guide CPhA in its pursuit of fulfilling the vision for California pharmacy. The Board of Trustees, along with our committees and academies, builds leadership skills in our members.

PAs are eager to hear about the latest tools to help them grow professionally and deliver high-quality patient care.

An occupation on the move

  • According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, employment of physician assistants is expected to increase 30 percent from 2010 to 2020—must faster than the average for all occupations.

 The unSUMMIT
Booth #16102
The unSUMMIT

Conventional summits deliver a something-for-everyone survey of the landscape with little or no depth on any given topic. This warp-speed flight provides only a 30,000-foot view of the terrain below. Nurses, pharmacists, and IT professionals return to the trenches of their own hospitals no better equipped to dig in and implement change.

The unSUMMIT is different. It delivers a steadfast focus on barcode point-of-care technology. Attendees are outfitted with practical tools, insight, and inspiration for leading their institutions to carefully select, implement, and harness the quality-improvement power of BPOC systems.

Truly an unconventional convention, The unSUMMIT is designed to get you out of the clouds and into the weeds, where the union of technology and practice can be more easily realized through the shared expertise of your experienced colleagues.

About

The unSUMMIT is the premier educational event for hospitals interested in Barcoding at the Point of Care (BPOC). Since 2005, our mission has been to bring together those who shared our passion for patient safety and to provide them with an environment where that passion can develop into the best practice. Industry-wide overviews and process theories are useful starting points, but to affect real change, care providers need the tools and lessons gained from real-world experience.

Barcode point-of-care (BPOC) systems have been in use for 20 years yet fewer than 35% of hospitals are using this critical safety measure for medication administration. Hospitals cite numerous legitimate reasons for the lack of adoption including budget constraints, competing IT priorities, and the lack of unit dose barcoded drug packages. Yet too often hospitals cite unfounded reasons: technology unreadiness, a fear that BPOC will be replaced with RFID soon, nurse resistance, and a belief that the solutions are too costly and labor intensive.
