What is a resolution and why might you want to make one?

January 10, 2012

No, we’re not talking about New Year’s resolutions; we mean resolutions to be considered at ACP’s annual general meeting in May.

Resolutions are practice change ideas proposed by ACP registrants and voted on at the AGM (May 24 this year). All resolutions carried at the AGM are then forwarded to council for consideration and decision. Resolutions are a way ACP registrants can shape the direction of pharmacy practice in Alberta.

Resolutions proposed for this year's AGM must be submitted by  4:30 p.m. on March 23, 2012.

Resolutions should relate to ACP’s mandated areas of responsibility: public safety, effective pharmacy practice, and health policy. Past resolutions have focussed on tablet splitting, the scheduling of codeine-containing products, and the storage of refrigerated biologicals and pharmaceutical. See past examples.

Submit your resolution in writing, accompanied by the signature of 10 voting registrants in good standing, to:

Leslie Ainslie, Executive Assistant
Alberta College of Pharmacists
1100-8215 112 St.
Edmonton, AB   T6G 2C8

Submission deadline: 4:30 p.m. on March 23, 2012.
