This research grant program supports demonstration projects related to practice advancement, consistent with the ASHP/ASHP Foundation Pharmacy Practice Model Initiative (PPMI) and Ambulatory PPMI. The overarching goal of the PPMI is to increase pharmacist participation 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 PPMI is driven by a set of assumptions, beliefs and recommendations from the November 2010 ASHP/ASHP Foundation PPMI 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 percent of the total requested budget are allowed.
