The UNC Eshelman School of Pharmacy and the American Society of Health-System Pharmacists are partnering to launch UNC Pharmacy Grand Rounds, a continuing-education series of monthly webcasts and on-demand offerings featuring national leaders in progressive pharmacy practice, education, and research.
“This partnership enables us to provide an additional educational option to meet the needs of our members and others in health-system pharmacy,” says ASHP CEO Paul W. Abramowitz, PharmD.
The subscription series launches in January and is available to individuals and to health-system organizations. A one-year subscription provides twelve hours of live CE per learner on current topics. If learners cannot view the live webcast, archives of the broadcasts will be available. Continuing Professional Education certificates may be processed online immediately, and CE is reported directly to CPE Monitor.
The 2013 calendar year includes topics such as pharmacogenomics, cardiology, administration, nephrology, psychiatry, women’s health, endocrinology, critical care, geriatrics, oncology, infectious diseases, and general medicine. All live webcasts are broadcast at noon EST on the second Tuesday of the month.
“UNC faculty members make it a priority to stay current on the most important topics in pharmacy. We are pleased to bring this knowledge to others in the profession,” says Bob Blouin, PharmD, dean of the School.
The series is ideal for small and midsize health systems with limited resources that wish to conduct monthly CE activities, but health systems of any size can benefit. In addition to providing education to their staff on current topics, managers will have the ability to monitor the participation and progress of their learners online.
