About AASHP

The Objectives of AASHP are to:

  1. Provide the benefits and protection of a qualified institutional pharmacist to the patient, to the institution which he/she serves, to the members of allied health professions with whom he/she is associated, and to the profession of pharmacy.
  2. Assist in providing an adequate supply of qualified institutional pharmacists.
  3. Assure a high quality of professional practice through the establishment and maintenance of standards for professional ethics, education, and through the promotion of economic welfare.
  4. Promote research in institutional pharmacy practices and in the pharmaceutical sciences in general.
  5. Disseminate pharmaceutical knowledge by providing for interchange of information among institutional pharmacists and members of allied specialties and professions.

The History of AASHP

The Austin Area Society of Hospital Pharmacists (AASHP) was established in the early 1980's when Jim Smeeding and Julie Nelson realized the Austin area needed its own chapter. Prior to AASHP being established, they traveled to San Antonio to attend the local San Antonio chapter meetings. The Austin chapter's original name was changed in 1995 to the Austin Area Society of Health-System Pharmacists.

AASHP presidents and president-elects also serve on the TSHP (Texas Society of Health-System Pharmacists) Board of Directors which meets quarterly. At the TSHP board meetings, AASHP presidents give a report of local chapter activities. In the "early days" the reports were typed or hand-written and often reflected the individual style of the president. For example, AASHP's first president Jim Smeeding wrote in a 1981 quarterly report to the TSHP board about a presentation on Stress Management given by Susan Young, MS, RN, from the Austin State Hospital that

...it is no surprise that an inventory of personality types showed overwhelmingly that hospital pharmacists are of a Type A personality… Self-hypnosis for relaxation was practiced at the meeting with one visitor (name removed for privacy) snoring away in approval...

Another quarterly report in the mid-'80s reported on a social meeting at a member's house with the following agenda items: barbecue, beer, and volleyball. Of course, more serious items were reported including membership numbers and topics of educational programs held.
