Center for the Advancement of Pharmacy Practice

A Message from the Director

The Center for the Advancement of Pharmacy Practice (CAPP) was established by the University of Kentucky College of Pharmacy to transform pharmacy practice within the state and the nation. The Center, through research, education, engagement, and scholarship, will facilitate the creation and translation of novel care delivery models within pharmacy practice that improve medication use and health outcomes.

The timing of the establishment of CAPP could not have been better, as there has been a groundswell of activity and support in 2012 toward achieving provider status for pharmacists, from the Report to the U.S. Surgeon General in late 2011 entitled Improving Patient and Health System Outcomes through Advanced Pharmacy Practice, to national petitions, to activity and support from prominent pharmacist professional organizations like the ASHP.

If you'd like to learn more about CAPP and how you can be a part of advancing pharmacy practice, please contact us!

Goals

The Center was created to:

  • Document the value of the pharmacist as a member of interprofessional healthcare teams by developing and implementing sustainable models of practice that improve medication use and health outcomes across practice settings.
  • Evaluate medication and health outcomes within pharmacy practice settings and disseminate results to promote practice change.
  • Engage practitioners across the state to advance the practice of pharmacy and provide tools and education to students and practitioners to assist in achieving this goal.
