    ACCP New Clinical Practitioner Award

    The ACCP New Clinical Practi-tioner Award honors outstanding con-tributions to the health of patients, the practice of clinical pharmacy, or both. The 2015 award winner, Megan E. Musselman, Pharm.D., M.S., BCPS, is a clinical pharmacy specialist in emergency medicine/critical care at North Kansas City Hospital in Kansas City, Missouri. She also serves as a clinical instructor at the University of Kansas School of Pharmacy. In her current position, Dr. Musselman is

    Morning Ceremonies Will Honor National Award Winnersresponsible for establishing and ex-tending clinical pharmacist services in both intensive care and emergency medicine settings.

    Her nominators credit her with de-veloping or revamping several pro-cesses, including TPA administration during ischemic stroke, intranasal medication administration proto-cols, and an ED procedural sedation guideline, as well as improving phar-macist attendance at both pediatric and adult codes by increasing staff training and comfort levels. Dr. Musselman is also heavily involved with interdisciplin-ary teams on facil-ity-wide initiatives to ensure the safe and appropriate use of agents to reverse novel oral anticoagulants, identify and treat pa-tients with sepsis as early as possible, and streamline therapy for patients with pain, agitation, and delirium.

    Dr. Musselman has published sev-en papers in peer-reviewed journals and has cowritten two book chapters. Her work has been presented at na-tional meetings such as the American College of Emergency Physicians

    Research Forum, the North American Congress of Clinical Toxicology, and the ACCP Spring Practice and Re-search Forum.

    ACCP New Educator AwardThe 2015 recipient of the ACCP

    New Educator Award is Brent N. Reed, Pharm.D., BCPS (AQ Car-diology), an assistant professor in the Department of Pharmacy Prac-tice and Science at the University of Maryland School of Pharmacy and a clinical pharmacy specialist on the advanced heart failure service at the University of Maryland Medical Cen-ter in Baltimore, Maryland. He also serves as the program director for the institutions PGY2 cardiology phar-macy practice residency program.

    The ACCP New Educator Award recognizes outstanding contribu-tions to the discipline of teaching and to the education of health care practitioners. Dr. Reed has excelled in both didactic and experiential set-tings, teaching required and elective courses across the curriculum and serving as an exceptional preceptor for students and residents.

    As course manager for the School of Pharmacys advanced heart fail-ure practice rotation for P4 students and PGY1 and PGY2 residents, Dr. Reeds teaching integrates the

    flipped classroom technique in which learners complete didactic work independently in preparation for active learning in the classroom or rotation. Using this method in the ad-

    vanced heart fail-ure rotation, he developed a list of key concepts to accompany the assigned readings and a required series of short videos. On pre-senting clinic, a quick quiz assess-es learning and

    ensures that pre-assigned work has been completed.

    Dr. Reed asks learners to keep a daily learning log that documents knowledge acquired and that includes literature citations. He is also credited with developing an innovative rubric that makes performance assessment very clear to students.

    In addition to his teaching, Dr. Reed has published 13 papers in peer-reviewed journals, cowritten three book chapters, and presented at national professional and scientific meetings.

    Business and Town HallThe ACCP Business and Town Hall

    Meeting is scheduled for 2:304:15 p.m. in Continental Ballrooms 4 & 5. Reports from ACCP Board of Regents President Judith Jacobi and Treasur-er Bradley Phillips will be followed by updates from the Nominations Com-mittee, Government and Professional Affairs, ACCP PAC, Pharmacotherapy, and ACCP Research Institute.

Collaborating with UNC on this project are the Alliance for Inte-grated Medication Management, the American Academy of Family Physi-

    cians National Research Network, and the University of Minnesota College of Pharmacy.

    The collaborators will address how CMM can be implemented and sus-tained in real-world primary care med-ical practices, including which patients and populations within primary care practices benefit the most, how medi-cal practices can deliver CMM most ef-fectively, and what are the contributions of the clinical pharmacist to clinical and economic performance metrics.

    Opening ReceptionThe days events conclude with fun
