Clinical Pharmacist Training Program in Primary Care

The College of Pharmacy will be offering an on-site training program from August 20 – August 23, 2018.

This program will prepare pharmacists to run a productive practice in an outpatient clinical environment. The training consists of 4 days of live training, including 3 half-day mock clinic sessions during which participants will conduct 18 clinic visits with simulated patient instructors.

Live training will begin with case discussions that emphasize practical application of clinical guidelines to individual patient cases. In the mock clinics, participants will learn how to deliver chronic disease management, comprehensive medication review and transitions of care services. Program faculty will provide feedback based on review of electronic medical record notes and simulated patient instructor assessments. Assessment of clinical decision-making and communication skills (motivational interviewing, patient empowerment, etc.) will be included.

    Pharmacy Continuing Education Requirements

    This activity is structured to meet application-based educational needs and applies to information learned in the time-frame allotted. Information in application-type activities is based on evidence as accepted in the literature by the healthcare professions. Pharmacy continuing education (PCE) credit will be earned based on participation in this activity. Any individual who is more than 10 minutes late to an activity or leaves an activity early will not be granted PCE credit. This procedure will be strictly enforced, so please plan accordingly.

    Participants must fully participate in the activity and complete the online activity evaluation before September 3, 2018. Online evaluations will not be available for completion and requests to process credit will not be accepted after this date. See the program instruction sheet distributed during the activity for the online activity link. Credit will not be processed until the online evaluation has officially closed for response. Please allow MPA two weeks to process and upload credit to CPE Monitor after the evaluation has closed. NOTE: ACPE guidelines prohibit MPA from issuing credit more than 60 days after the activity for any reason; therefore, to avoid denial of credit, it is imperative that pharmacists and pharmacy technicians complete the online evaluation by the deadline indicated to allow sufficient time for processing. If all requirements are met, participants will receive pharmacy continuing education (PCE) credit through CPE Monitor, a national, collaborative effort by ACPE and the National Association of Boards of Pharmacy (NABP) to provide an electronic system for pharmacists and pharmacy technicians to track their completed PCE credits. MPA, as an ACPE-accredited provider, is required to report pharmacist and pharmacy technician PCE credit using this tracking system. Pharmacist and pharmacy technician participants must provide their NABP e-Profile identification number and date of birth (in MMDD format) when they complete activity evaluations. It will be the responsibility of the participant to provide the correct information. If this information is not correctly provided, NABP and ACPE prohibit MPA from issuing CPE credit. Online access to their inventory of completed credits will allow pharmacists and pharmacy technicians to easily monitor their compliance with CPE requirements and print statements of credit. Therefore, MPA will not provide printed statements of credit to pharmacists and pharmacy technicians. Partial credit will not be awarded. If you have yet to sign up for CPE Monitor, go to MyCPEMonitor.net.
