In the foreword, Sara J. White, MS, FASHP writes:

“I continue to read and be impressed with every Director’s Forum article in the Hospital Pharmacy journal… Effective pharmacy leadership has never been more critical than it is today… In today’s environment, pharmacy leaders face the perfect storm of… rapid changes and restructuring in health care… (including) maintaining an engaged workforce… reducing or containing costs… meeting increasing demand… ensuring a fail-safe medication system…enhancing the pharmacy practice model.”

“This compilation is useful for current pharmacy leaders and pharmacists as they evaluate and improve their practices and in teaching and training programs. These articles can be effectively used in leadership succession plans as a way to develop the next generation of pharmacy leaders. Selected columns are a must for incorporation into all postgraduate years 1 and 2 residencies to meet the leadership components.
