Back to Cardiology Pharmacy Specialty Literature Study: Module 1A-B (Cert #L199215)
Accreditation for Pharmacists
The American Society of Health-System Pharmacists and American College of Clinical Pharmacy are accredited by the Accreditation Council for Pharmacy Education as providers of continuing pharmacy education.
The Cardiology Pharmacy Specialty Literature Study is designed to help board-certified pharmacy practitioners who are seeking recertification credit hours to maintain their Board of Pharmacy Specialties (BPS) Board Certification.
The Literature Study Module is intended for board certified pharmacists in need of recertification credit and is designed based on the content outline developed by the Board of Pharmacy Specialties (BPS). This module consists of 2 online home study activities (see table below). Each activity is designed to assess the learners’ ability to analyze and apply peer-selected contemporary articles to practice.
Module 1A – Antithrombotics/Antiplatelets: This module focuses on antithrombotic therapy in patients with heart failure and atrial fibrallation, as well as antiplatelet therapy in patients with diabetes mellitus.
Module 1B – Critical Care Cardiology and Endocarditis: This module focuses on the use of epinephrine in cardiac arrest and cardiogenic shock, as well as the partial use of oral antibiotic therapy in endocarditis.
Learners will be required to review the content and complete the associated online assessments. The learner must be able to correctly answer the questions based upon their interpretation of the content, as well as “baseline specialty specific knowledge and/or easily retrievable information.” For purposes of this Literature Study, “baseline specialty specific knowledge and/or easily retrievable information” is defined as product labeling and well-established standards of practice in the specialty practice.
These activities are part of the ASHP and ACCP professional development program for BCCP recertification approved by the BPS.
Board certified pharmacists are eligible to receive up to 8 hours of recertification credit for completing this module. To earn recertification credit, learners must review the activity content and successfully complete the online assessments by the deadline. Only completed assessments will be eligible for credit; no partial or incomplete assessments will be processed. You are allowed only one attempt to successfully complete this assessment.
