The Minnesota Pharmacists Association is a state professional association, whose membership includes pharmacists, students pharmacists, pharmacy technicians, and those with professional and/or business interests in pharmacy. Our mission is to advance patient care by serving Minnesota pharmacists. We value engaged pharmacy professionals who are open to listening to others and cooperating with others as they work toward a greater good for all patients. We maintain an ongoing commitment to excellent patient care, continuous quality improvement, and adoption of standards of practice to improve care delivery and patient outcomes. We also recognize that patient care does not occur in isolation and support and promote inter-professional collaboration and cooperation between health care professionals from many different specialty areas. Further, to provide quality patient care, a practice must remain financially viable and we work to maintain a strong economic environment for pharmacy practice. We are actively engaged in advocacy efforts to ensure that laws and regulations keep pace with the evolution of the profession, and to increase public awareness of the role of pharmacists in advancing patient care. We encourage and promote networking among pharmacy professionals and partnership with other professional organizations to advance common goals through collaboration.
