Pharmacists can now earn an Emergency Medicine Certificate and 27 hours of pharmacy CE from ASHP.
The self-guided, online course comprises 11 modules that review the key roles and responsibilities of pharmacists practicing in emergency medicine, with specific concentrations on the application of evidence-based pharmacologic and non-pharmacologic therapies for clinical situations frequently encountered in the emergency department.
“Pharmacists are an integral part of the patient care team in the emergency department (ED), a unique practice setting where rapid initiation of medication therapy is often needed and a strong focus on patient safety is required,” said ASHP CEO Paul W. Abramowitz, PharmD., FASHP in a statement. “The new ASHP Emergency Medicine Certificate program is a valuable resource to introduce pharmacists to the fundamental concepts related to medication therapy in the ED and to equip them with the knowledge necessary to help ensure patient safety in this setting.”
