Saturday, November 3, 2018

About the Program

Who Should Attend?

Pharmacists and Technicians can receive up to 16 hours of live CE including the State of Florida mandated (Validation of Prescriptions for Controlled Substances, 2 hours and Med Error, 2 hours) courses. Consultant Pharmacists can receive up to 12 hours of consultant re-certification credit.

This is a program designed for pharmacists to confirm that they indeed meet and exceed various standards of being healthcare providers in the State of Florida. The quality of this conference is at a national level regardless of its application to Florida issues.

NSU continues to be the only Florida provider of live two-day pharmacy continuing education programs that does not receive financial influence from the pharmaceutical industry in the form of grants, donations or display fees of any kind.

What Would Interest You About This Conference?

1. From a license requirement standpoint one could achieve those needs in attending. Bob Parrado gave the first Validation program in the State at NSU a few years ago and has revised and updated it to make the two hours more relevant and interesting. The Med Error program is always exciting because of Dr. Matthew Seamon’s work to do so and also because of the speech provided by the recipient of the “Stephanie Feldman Aleong National Patient Safety Award.”

2. Interprofessional Education (IPE) offerings gives providers of pharmacy education a chance for improving their overall quality of healthcare when they offer non-pharmacist presenters who utilize their educational abilities to introduce their specialties to pharmacists, consultants & technicians and relate how the professions will network in an interactive manner regarding patient care responsibility.

3. Another reason to attend this conference is to absorb the ideas for future applications. Participants will be able to experience professional opportunities that are “cutting edge” skills and knowledge and be shown how to enhance their current talents, being able to implement at a unique skill level over further learning progression.
