ASHP Shared Member Resources enables members to share documents on-line

Having relied for years on ASHP’s Listserv to share concerns and thoughts on pharmacy practice, I was especially pleased to see a new ASHP initiative designed to make the functionality of the pharmacy practice listservs it hosts much more valuable.  ASHP’s Shared Member Resources allows pharmacy directors, managers and practitioners the ability to share documents they have created at their individual practice settings with their fellow ASHP members.

All documents are saved in pdf format, which has the added advantage of preserving the original author’s settings and formatting but also makes it easier to share documents across multiple wordprocessing and spreadsheet formats.   Those of us who work with multiple health-systems understand the challenges of sharing documents with our client hospitals since the advent of MS Office 2007 and now more recently MS Office 2010, so the adoption of the pdf format for all documents will allow ASHP’s members to share their documents with ease using the Shared Member Resources function.

I reviewed some of the documents ASHP members had uploaded recently and among those listed I found several policies and procedures, guidelines and order forms that may be useful for organizations to review as part of any process reengineering or policy development projects.
