In response to member requests for more practice based and contemporary products for specialty certification review and recertification, ASHP launched our Specialty Certification products and courses.
ASHP is the leading continuing pharmacy education provider in the country, and our products were developed by premier content experts and faculty. Our complex case-based, interactive approach goes against the didactic learning norm, and engages the attendee in a way that is sure to have a meaningful and lasting impact on their practice.
Our Review Course was designed for the high-level practitioner who is looking for a more practical approach. We are not a therapeutics lecture on a single disease state. We set up simulated circumstances that you may encounter in your daily practice.
Participants follow “patients” in real-life scenarios from initial presentation, medical history, risk factors, and complications throughout their treatments and outcomes. Participants learn as they apply various treatment options based on national standards and guidelines. Strong emphasis is placed on the thought processes needed to solve patient care problems in each therapeutic area. As patient cases are discussed, faculty members are there to present the best answer to questions that illustrate key concepts.
Highlights of the ASHP review course include:
A therapeutics lecture on a single disease state and an entire week away from work and family.
ASHP has adopted a 3-pronged approach to support practitioner’s recertification requirements while simultaneously meeting their need for continuous professional development:
Feedback we received while developing these programs was that the market was dominated by unpopular recertification products that were outdated and cumbersome to complete. Our approach offers practitioners more contemporary options based on their current needs while simultaneously allowing them to fill the knowledge gaps they may find in their everyday practice.
