Pharmacy Practice Advancement Demonstration Grant

The 2016 application cycle is now closed. Please check back for information about the next program offering or sign up for the ASHP Foundation Enews for the latest information.

The ASHP Research and Education Foundation (ASHP Foundation) is offering a research grant program to support demonstration projects related to practice advancement, consistent with the ASHP/ASHP Foundation Practice Advancement Initiative (PAI) and Ambulatory PAI.  The overarching goal of the PAI is to increase pharmacist leadership on patient care teams as the professional who is responsible and accountable for patients’ medication-related outcomes while delegating all medication distribution functions that do not require clinical judgment to qualified pharmacy technicians and technology.

The proposed practice-based research must be consistent with:
• The vision, mission and strategic priorities of the ASHP Foundation
• The PAI is driven by a set of assumptions, beliefs and recommendations from the 2010 Pharmacy Practice Model Initiative Summit and the 2014 Ambulatory Care Conference and Summit.

The proposed practice-based research must be aligned with:
• The vision, mission and critical issues of the ASHP Foundation;
• The set of assumptions, beliefs and recommendations for advancing pharmacy practice from the November 2010 ASHP/ASHP Foundation Pharmacy Practice Model Initiative (PPMI) Summit or the recommendations from the March 2014 ASHP Ambulatory Care Conference & Summit.

Funding Information
Up to two $75,000 grants will be awarded. Grants will be awarded to provide funding for specific practice-based research related to advancing pharmacy practice models and are not intended for long-term support of research programs.  Facilities and administrative cost rates that do not exceed 8% of the total requested budget are allowed.
