Transforming Pharmacy Practice

The Center for the Advancement of Pharmacy Practice (CAPP) was established by the University of Kentucky College of Pharmacy to transform pharmacy practice within the state and the nation. The Center, through research, education, engagement, and scholarship, will facilitate the creation and translation of novel care delivery models within pharmacy practice that improve medication use and health outcomes.

The timing of the establishment of CAPP could not have been better, as there has been a groundswell of activity and support in 2012 toward achieving provider status for pharmacists, from the Report to the U.S. Surgeon General in late 2011 entitled Improving Patient and Health System Outcomes through Advanced Pharmacy Practice, to national petitions, to activity and support from prominent pharmacist professional organizations like the ASHP.

We wish to remember and honor those who inhabited this Commonwealth before the arrival of the Europeans. Briefly occupying these lands were the Osage, Wyndott tribe, and Miami peoples. The Adena and Hopewell peoples, who are recognized by the naming of the time period in which they resided here, were here more permanently. Some of their mounds remain in the Lexington area, including at UK’s Adena Park.

In more recent years, the Cherokee occupied southeast Kentucky, the Yuchi southwest Kentucky, the Chickasaw extreme western Kentucky and the Shawnee central Kentucky including what is now the city of Lexington. The Shawnee left when colonization pushed through the Appalachian Mountains. Lower Shawnee Town ceremonial grounds are still visible in Greenup County.

We honor the first inhabitants who were here, respect their culture, and acknowledge the presence of their descendants who are here today in all walks of life including fellow pharmacists and healthcare professionals.
