Accreditation

CPPA develops pharmacy practice standards and accredits pharmacy practices that meet the accreditation criteria.

The mission of CPPA is to serve the public health by raising the level of pharmacy-delivered patient care services through accreditation of pharmacy practices. CPPA exists to fulfill a promise to patients for high-quality, safe, and efficient pharmacy care. CPPA creates, manages, and maintains the process leading to the use of consensus-based standards for pharmacy practice accreditation and develops and implements comprehensive programs of pharmacy practice site accreditation.

Pharmacy practice accreditation meets the public’s need for specific, predictable, and measurable pharmacy-based patient care services. The accreditation process facilitates innovation, recognition and viable operations for participating pharmacy practices.
