Ohio Pharmacists Association - OPA Annual Conference & Trade Show 2018
The Ohio Pharmacists Association (OPA) was formed September 2, 1879 in Columbus, Ohio under the name Ohio State Pharmaceutical Association (OSPA).
The purpose of the Association was to elevate the character of the pharmaceutical profession, by uniting the reputable druggists of the state in order to foster the education of those learning the art and thereby stimulate the talent of those engaged in pharmacy. In cooperation with its members and leaders, the present-day OPA continues to function by this purpose and act to positively impact the profession as these past extraordinary individuals did.
The Ohio Pharmacists Association Annual Conference and Trade Show is themed Team-based Patient Care: - Coordinate - Collaborate -Communicate.
For improved patient outcomes today, pharmacists must coordinate, collaborate and communicate with other members of the health care team.
