Activity Overview

This webinar will review strategies for incorporating diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) training amongst pharmacy residency programs. Attendees will hear from pharmacy residents discussing their program’s approach of establishing recurrent expert-led dialogue amongst trainees that encourages exploration and cultivates a culture of support and respect in the workplace. Lastly, a residency program director will explore training techniques that address implicit bias in the precepting and recruitment process.

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

This activity was planned to meet the needs of pharmacists and pharmacy technicians who participate in the recruitment, education, and training of pharmacy residents or pharmacy residency preceptors.  

  1. Discuss the impact of bias and discrimination on the quality of patient care provided by the pharmacy workforce.
  2. Describe successful programs in pharmacy education and training that promote diversity, equity, and inclusion principles within their curricula.
  3. Identify successful methods for preparing pharmacy resident preceptors and educators to provide adequate training in diversity, equity, and inclusion to their residents.

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. In accordance with these Standards, all potential conflicts of interest have been resolved. 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.

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 report no financial relationships relevant to this activity.
