IPA Launches Practice Advancement Initiative (PAI) 2030 Task Force

The IPA Board of Trustees has approved the creation of a task force to support the nationwide campaign to advance pharmacy practice in hospitals and health-systems. This campaign centers on the ASHP Practice Advancement Initiative (PAI) 2030. IPA is seeking volunteers for the task force.

The IPA Board of Trustees recently approved the creation of a task force to support the nationwide campaign to advance pharmacy practice in hospitals and health-systems. This campaign centers on the ASHP Practice Advancement Initiative (PAI) 2030. The task force will be championed by IPA's President-Elect, John Hamiel, and chaired by IPA's Director of Professional Affairs, Emmeline Paintsil. The PAI 2030 Task Force will include leaders from hospitals and health-systems across Iowa.

IPA's PAI 2030 Task Force will: 

  • Identify high-priority, feasible, and impactful focus areas (e.g., pharmacy-driven medication reconciliation, residency program expansion) that help drive pharmacy practice change across the state. 

  • Help health-system leadership identify where the PAI 2030 recommendations may have the largest impact on their setting and create a customized list of priorities for implementing change. 

  • Support practice and patient care advancement over the next three years through alignment with PAI 2030 recommendations and implementation of practice-focused and organization-focused initiatives.

  • Assist in achieving 100% completion of the PAI 2030 Self-Assessment Tool in every hospital and health-system across Iowa by 2024.

If you are interested in serving on the task force, please complete this survey before May 1, 2023.

Task force invitations will be sent out Monday, May 15th, with the first meeting occurring in June.
