Activity Overview

Adult learners take seven times to retain information. Case-based learning aids in connecting patients and outcomes. Historically, surgeons use mortality and morbidity to learn through errors made, affecting patient
outcomes. Pharmacy residency programs can employ a similar model by using medication related events/errors to enhance the knowledge of all to minimize the event/error from occurring in the future. This
webinar will describe a pharmacy residency’s approach to a mortality and morbidity conference.


The American Society of Health-System Pharmacists is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Pharmacy Education as a provider of continuing pharmacy education.

Target Audience

This continuing pharmacy education activity is designed for pharmacy practitioners serving as residency preceptors.

Learning Objectives

  • Describe the structure of a case-based medication related death and complications teaching model (similar to morbidity and mortality rounds).
  • Discuss how to identify residents and preceptors who will benefit from participation in a death and complications series.
  • Discuss the components of an evaluation process for the death and complications series and participants.

In accordance with the ACPE's and ACCME's Standards for Commercial Support, anyone in a position to control the content of an educational activity is required to disclose to the accredited provider their relevant financial relationships. An individual has a relevant financial relationship if he or she (or spouse/domestic partner) has a financial relationship in any amount occurring in the last 12 months with a commercial interest whose products or services are discussed in the activity content over which the individual has control. In accordance with these Standards, all potential conflicts of interest have been resolved.

As defined by ACCME, a commercial interest is any entity producing, marketing, re-selling, or distributing health care goods or services consumed by, or used on, patients. The Standards for Commercial Support do not consider providers of clinical service directly to patients to be commercial interests. The existence or non-existence of relevant financial relationships will be disclosed to the activity audience. All identified conflicts of interest must be resolved prior to the activity.

• All planners, presenters, reviewers, and ASHP staff of this session report no financial relationships relevant to this activity.
