Association

A unit association of the Florida Pharmacy Association

The Dade County Pharmacy Association (DCPA) is a unit of the Florida Pharmacy Association, the largest and oldest state-wide organization representing the profession of pharmacy in Florida.

Mission Statement:

 

The mission of pharmacy is to serve society as the profession responsible for the appropriate use of medications, devices and services to achieve optimal therapeutic outcomes.

 

In pursuit of that mission, DCPA:

  1. Advocates the interests of pharmacists and pharmacy technicians in Miami-Dade County;
  2. Represents members on issues of economics, political action and public relations of interest to pharmacy;
  3. Promotes, supports and provides education for the enhancement of professional, management and leadership
    development;
  4. Promotes the highest professional and ethical standards of practice for the delivery of pharmaceutical care;
  5. Identifies, evaluates, and responds to trends and events that impact pharmacy and the health care system, and;
  6. Fosters effective communication between pharmacists, health care professionals, and the public to enhance the
    overall quality of health care.
The Dade County Pharmacy Association is helping sponsor weekly Jazz at Jackson events starting 11/3 at noon in the Alamo Park at Jackson.  The weekly concerts had been suspended due to COVID.  The association wanted to ensure that all healthcare providers and patients were, once again,  treated to the healing power of music.
 
If you work in the medical center, please make sure to let the organizers know that you have contributed to these events as members of the association.

Review Your CE posting status

Members are reminded to regularly review their CE posting status at CE Brokers.  We encourage that you check the hours posted to ensure that the provider is correctly posting your hours.  We also encourage that you confirm the type of credit posted: Consultant v.s. General Credit.

 

Also Remember:

to check your hours before and after any license renewal. Once hours are posted for general credit toward the PS license, they cannot be changed to Consultant credit to be used at that PU license’s renewal.

Special Thanks!

Thank you all who participated in the 26th Annual Residency Program. Our first attempt at running concurrent sessions with breakout rooms went fairly smoothly. Yes, there were a stoppers.

Evaluations have been reviewed and shared with the Residents and their Preceptors. The program content and presentation were well received.

Ideas for 2023? Maybe something like “LIFE BEYOND COVID.” We can only hope!
