A Message from the President
Welcome to the North Dakota Society Health-System Pharmacists (NDSHP) website.
What does it mean to be a Health-System Pharmacist? Over the past 18 years of practice I have seen visions turn into reality. In our health-systems across the state, pharmacists are integral members of the patient care provider team; working hand in hand with doctors, mid-level providers, nurses and therapists to enhance the lives of the patients and communities we serve. No longer do we ask where does the pharmacist fit in as a provider. Now are the days where our fellow providers seek our involvement in all aspects of medication therapy for our patients.
The NDSHP vision statement reads “To provide leadership that inspires optimal medication use every patient, every time”. Now this is a vision I want to see become a reality. Can you imagine the patient care successes with such a reality? I do not believe this vision is a "pie in the sky" dream. I believe we can inspire our fellow pharmacists to such a level. With your help, it is my goal to assure that this organization does its very best to see this vision become a reality.
NDSHP has many opportunities to get involved. Check out our website for more information about upcoming events, networking and education sessions.
I want to personally thank all of our members for their ongoing support. If you are new to our website and are looking to join the North Dakota Health-System Pharmacists, please find the Join us link for more information.
