Reports and presentations made during the Accreditation Council for Pharmacy Education’s (ACPE) Advancing Quality in Pharmacy Education: Charting Accreditation’s Future Conference last year are available online.
The seven conference-related papers suggest revisions needed to the standards for professional degree programs in pharmacy to ensure that pharmacists have the competencies needed. Some address best practices in assessment and quality improvement in PharmD programs.
“This conference was a unique opportunity for leaders in pharmacy practice and education to have early input into the next generation of standards for pharmacy education,” said Robert S. Beardsley, ACPE president, RPh, PhD. “We are pleased that the insightful thinking from the conference is now available for widespread review and discussion within the profession.”
The reports include “Continuing Our Collaboration to Create Practice-ready, Team-oriented Patient Care Pharmacists”; “Summary of the ACPE Consensus Conference on Advancing Quality in Pharmacy Education”; “Recommendations for the Next Generation of Accreditation Standards for Doctor of Pharmacy Education”; “Results of the Pre-Conference Survey”; “Employer Expectations of New Pharmacy Graduates: Implications for the Pharmacy Degree Accreditation Standards”; “A Consumer Advocate’s Perspective on Pharmacist”; and “What’s Next in the ACPE Accreditation Standards Revision Process?”
Both text copies of the reports and audio/PowerPoint files are available.
