ICHP Position Statements

The Illinois Council of Health-System Pharmacists (ICHP) develops position statements on pharmacy practice and health care policy.  These position statements are intended to guide the practice of pharmacy by its members and clearly express to patients and decision makers the viewpoint of ICHP on important issues affecting the health of patients and their families in Illinois.

Topics for position statements are identified and approved by the ICHP Executive Committee and then assigned to, drafted by, and then approved by the appropriate ICHP division. The final approval of ICHP’s position statements is made by the ICHP Board of Directors before being posted on the ICHP website.

The Division of Professional Affairs is responsible for regular periodic review and updating of all position statements on this website.

ICHP is the Illinois Affiliate of the American Society of Health System Pharmacists (ASHP).  ASHP has also developed a variety of position statements that may be useful to ICHP members.  ICHP members may recommend the development of new position statements they consider missing from the ICHP list and should submit them to the ICHP office or an ICHP presidential officer so that they may follow the same process as described above.

For questions or concerns regarding an ICHP position statement, please contact the ICHP office.
