ACCP Report - August 2018

Keynote Address Will Focus on the Art of Person-Centered Care

Allison Massari

Join ACCP on Saturday, October 20, at the Washington State Conference Center in Seattle, Washington, for the 2018 ACCP Global Conference on Clinical Pharmacy keynote address. This year’s keynote address will be delivered by Allison Massari and will focus on transforming patient lives.

As part of her keynote presentation, Massari will share her story of loss, forgiveness, and understanding. She will describe how compassionate, patient-centered care can build an expansive, life-changing foundation for healing for both patients and health professionals. Massari’s address will illustrate how kindness is a critical healing tool. She explains:

The power of what you do goes far beyond the technical part of your job. You are healing the places medicine cannot touch. In fact, YOU are the medicine and beyond.

As an advocate for both patients and health care providers, Massari understands the essential nature of patient-centered care and offers real-world tools for managing change, adversity, and the everyday challenges of being human.

Massari has survived two life-threatening car accidents, including one in which she had second- and third-degree burns on over 50% of her body. Her experiences and her extensive time in recovery give her compelling authority to energize health care teams and catalyze a deepened commitment to patient-centered care. Massari’s story will exemplify the importance of collaboration among teams of health care professionals and will show how their kindness, determination, and compassion changed her life and built a foundation for healing. Prepare to be taken on a journey. Massari’s story has been described as “life-changing” and will inspire, invigorate, and fuel the passion that has led so many to pursue a career in clinical pharmacy.
