Award for Excellence in Medication-Use Safety
Supported by a grant from the Cardinal Health Foundation
Application Deadline Extended: January 31, 2014
The American Society of Health-System Pharmacists (ASHP) Research and Education Foundation created the Award for Excellence in Medication-Use Safety in 2004. This is the only award program to honor a pharmacist-led multidisciplinary team for its significant institution-wide system improvements relating to medication use.
The $50,000 award, which is sponsored by the Cardinal Health Foundation, recognizes on a national level pharmacy professionals who have assumed a leadership role in promoting safety in the medication-use process. The award also honors two finalists, who each receive $10,000.
2014 Letter of Intent Submission Process
A letter of intent screening component has been added to the Award for Excellence in Medication-Use Safety application process. Applicants are required to submit a letter of intent that describes their medication safety initiative. These letters of intent will be reviewed by external expert reviewers. Based on results of the letters of intent review process, selected applicants will be invited to submit a full application for the award.
