Managers’ Boot Camp

Time: 8:00 a.m. – 4:30 p.m.
Workshop Fee: $415 ($490 for non-members; lunch and break included; registration limited)

Pharmacists promoted into management positions often find themselves challenged by tasks and responsibilities for which they lack specific training. While strong clinical acumen is an important competency for pharmacy managers, there are many other critical skills pharmacists must possess in order to be effective managers and leaders. Managers must understand how to build and leverage key relationships within the organization, build effective teams within their departments, lead and develop staff members, establish and implement new programs and services, track performance, and develop strategic plans for their departments. They must also be skilled at presenting ideas to senior leadership and understanding the factors that drive decisions of health system administrators in order to expand the services and contributions of the pharmacy department.

After participating in this application-based activity, participants should be able to:

  • Identify challenges and opportunities in managing the compliance of regulatory requirements and striving for service excellence.
  • Evaluate key financial and quality indicators that influence health-system administrators’ decisions to assist pharmacy leaders in aligning their strategic planning to positively impact institutional goals.
  • Develop and apply strategies to advance pharmacy services through staff engagement, customer feedback, and effective personnel management.
  • Identify ways pharmacy managers can better communicate the value of pharmacy to the health system to senior leadership and others.
  • Demonstrate key steps for successful development and implementation of a business plan for new or expanded services.
