American Society of Health-System Pharmacists

ASHP (American Society of Health-System Pharmacists) strongly supports the Choosing Wisely campaign and its efforts to advance a national dialogue on avoiding wasteful or unnecessary medical tests, treatments, and procedures. For nearly 75 years, ASHP has been at the forefront of efforts to improve medication use and enhance patient safety, and participating in the Choosing Wisely campaign furthers ASHP’s vision of ensuring that medication use is optimal, safe, and effective for all people all of the time. ASHP represents pharmacists who serve as patient care providers in acute and ambulatory settings. The organization’s more than 43,000 members include pharmacists, student pharmacists, and pharmacy technicians.
