ASHP has announced the release of ResiTrak, a free, Internet-based tool that tracks the learning progress of pharmacy residents. In a joint venture with McCreadie Group, the association is offering ASHP-accredited residency programs the chance to eliminate paper and replace it with ResiTrak to document residents? outcomes, goals, and objectives. Janet Teeters, director of the accreditation services division at ASHP, said that ResiTrak is a product that ASHP preceptors have been asking for. It supports a systems-based approach to training based on ASHP?s Residency Learning System (RLS), which provides feedback to residents in their practice settings. Users are alerted to tasks via e-mail. Key features of the program include: on-line setup of residencies and learning experiences with outcomes, goals, and objectives to be taught and evaluated in the program; recording of summative, quarterly, preceptor, snapshot, and other evaluations; extensive reporting for residency directors that ensures preparation for accreditation surveys; and completion of required evaluations.
