The authors discuss the data reported by the American Society of Health-System Pharmacists (ASHP) Commission on Credentialing in August 2010, and highlight the challenges in creating an effective preceptor development plan. They explain the need to document the requirements necessary to be a preceptor as well as how the plan will be implemented and assessed. The seven defined criteria of accreditation standards are also discussed.
