Student Leadership in Health Advocacy and Policy Development

Abstract:

Objectives: "The Accreditation Council of Pharmacy Education, in its new proposed standards and guidelines, encourages schools to provide opportunities for students to impact current and emerging issues as positive stimulus for change. In order to be effective in this role, students must: 1) have a comprehensive understanding of important current and emerging issues, 2) be capable of effectively communicating and collaborating with a wide variety of stakeholders and 3) understand the collaborative leadership and policy development process."

Methods: Faculty from the University of Washington School of Pharmacy and a current fourth-year student have developed an elective course designed to achieve these goals. Students enrolled in this course are given opportunities to resolve identified challenges with lawmakers, policy-makers and participate in grassroots advocacy efforts. Topics include: the Conscience Clause, Medicare Part D, Minute Clinics and other unique health settings, and future directions of MTMS. Students are required to write a position paper and draft a resolution suitable for presentation at a national pharmacy association meeting or a legislative/policy development body. Partnerships have been formed with grassroots community groups, governmental agencies and professional associations.

Results: Course evaluations will be available at the end of the quarter, March 2006.

Future Implications: We will track these students to see if a correlation exists between students enrolled in this course and future involvement in advocacy efforts or enrollment in a graduate program related to health policy.
