Accreditation for Pharmacists
The American Society of Health-System Pharmacists is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Pharmacy Education as a provider of continuing pharmacy education.
These Literature Studies are designed to help board-certified pharmacists who are seeking recertification credit hours to maintain their Board of Pharmacy Specialties (BPS).
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 3 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 and includes a short video for enhanced learning and understanding.
Module 1A: Pain: This module focuses on pain management including opioid tolerance, opioid use disorder and use of nonnarcotic medications to manage pain.
Module 1B: Emergency Medicine and Disaster Preparedness: This module focuses on emergency preparedness and screening for tuberculosis in healthcare personnel.
Module 1C: Infectious Diseases: This module includes a variety of infectious diseases topics including drug allergies and immunology as well as study design and laboratory concepts.
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 professional development program for BCPS recertification approved by the BPS.
Board certified pharmacists are eligible to receive up to 15 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.
