Overview 

This self-guided, online program will provide 25.25 hours of ACPE continuing education for pharmacists, incorporating recorded presentations, worksheets, and practice activities. 

These 10 modules are designed for participants to increase the knowledge and skills necessary to provide patient-centric care and develop system specific crisis and pandemic management capability. The curriculum addresses basic principles associated with the history of pandemics, skills required to evaluate literature, ethical discussion of resource scarcity, and necessary communication channels. The course further concentrates on acquiring knowledge and skill in the public health area of pharmacist responsibility and specific front-line activities where pharmacists have opportunities to impact direct patient care. Also considered are business and financial optimization, supply chain interruptions, and regulatory considerations. Throughout the course, the patient’s journey is considered as is the wellness and resilience of patients and caregivers. Upon completion of all the modules, participants should be proficient in assessing system and patient needs during crisis and pandemic conditions and recommending pharmacologic and non-pharmacologic interventions to maintain safe and effective workflows during adverse conditions.

Once a learner has successfully completed the educational curriculum, he/she will have the opportunity to complete a 100 question comprehensive exam. If the learner successfully completes the exam (minimum 80% passing rate; unlimited attempts permitted), he/she will be eligible to earn the professional certificate.
