About The ASHP Clinical Skills Competition
The ASHP Clinical Skills Competition facilitates clinical skill development for pharmacy students by encouraging cooperation and teamwork. The competition is designed as an interactive, team-based analysis of clinical scenarios for hospital and health-system pharmacists to help patients make the best use of their medications.
The competition increases pharmacy students’ awareness of the importance of the pharmacist’s role in direct patient care, and to realize their full potential as pharmaceutical care providers by developing a
systematic approach to pharmacy practice and patient care.
Using a case study, teams are required to: identify pertinent information to make decisions on desired therapeutic outcomes; assess the current drug therapy regimen; design and recommend a pharmacist’s care plan to achieve pharmacotherapeutic goals; and justify their care plan in an oral presentation.
Students will be evaluated on the accuracy, relevance, and completeness of their written information, and on the justification of their therapy recommendations as demonstrated by the oral defense of their care plan. These criteria were selected to evaluate the team’s approach to clinical problem solving, an important component of providing pharmaceutical care.
