Back to Pediatric Pharmacy Specialty Recertification Literature Study: Module 2A-B (Cert # L219145)
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 contact 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 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 and includes a short video for enhanced learning and understanding.
Module 2A – Critical Care: This module focuses on updates in pediatric critical care issues including septic shock guideline, protocols for status asthmaticus, and dexmetotomidine for prolonged sedation.
Module 2B – General Pediatrics: This module focuses on general pediatric topics including S. aureus bacteremia, guidelines for therapeutic monitoring of vancomycin in MRSA, comparison of acetaminophen and ibuprofen for fever and pain in infants, and safety and efficacy of AR101 for peanut allergy.
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 BCPPS recertification approved by the BPS.
Board certified pharmacists are eligible to receive up to 10 contact 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.
