What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

With the passing of the Affordable Care Act, there is a shift in the payment model for pharmacies. This is causing a fear of the unknown and added stress on the future of practitioners. The future of pharmacy is unclear due to declining reimbursements, uncertainty due to changes in payment models, and changes in the profession. Uncertainty may increase the chance of a professional making an unethical decision due to financial constraint. There are examples of pharmacists who are making good ethical decisions and these stories need to be told. Pharmacists are expressing a feeling of impotence and an inability to care for their patients to the extent they were educated. No one is speaking to the profession and its stakeholders as a whole concerning these issues. The association is a resource for health care professionals on the topic of ethics to prevent harmful medication errors caused by ethics violations.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

The mission of Pharmacy Ethics, Education and Resources (PEER) is to educate health care professionals on ethics to improve patient safety.
Articles of Incorporation as a 501©3 public charity with focus on education and decreasing governmental burden are pending approval by the IRS.
PEER will increase awareness of ethical considerations for all aspects of pharmacy. PEER will create:
a series of patient safety focused continuing education programs and a speaker’s bureau to present these programs;
an ethics certificate program;
a retraining program focusing on ethics, law, and customer service
a collection of full length and op-ed articles on the topic of ethics;
a complaint process for consumers;
and a database of incidents, positive and negative, submitted by consumers and health care professionals of examples of ethical decisions;
PEER will be the voice of pharmacy ethics and board members and fellows will be integral in the conversation of the future of the pharmacy profession. Success for the association will be measured by the number of requests for expertise by the association and a decrease in the number of reported incidents as indicated by the collection of the data and researching past data. PEER will be the consumer advocate for quality, affordable patient care and the resource for health care professionals to provide that care. Ultimately, the success of the association will be the absence of a patient death related to a pharmacist based on a bad ethical decision.

The PEER Board and the Advisory Board will be used to create content and identify other resources to find qualified authors and presenters to meet the goals of the organization.

There are three continuing education programs available on the PEER website. Several presentations have been given at national, state, and local pharmacy associations. There has been an increase in visibility and awareness in the programs available. Two additional programs will be added to the PEER website shortly.
