ACCP 2012 Annual Meeting * October 21-24, 2012 * Hollywood, Florida
About From Theory to Bedside: Clinical Reasoning Series
From Theory to Bedside: Clinical Reasoning Series is one component of the professional development program developed by ACCP and approved by the Board of Pharmacy Specialties (BPS) for the recertification of the Board Certified Pharmacotherapy Specialist (BCPS).
This live education series explores cutting-edge, contemporary therapeutic topics, and demonstrates scientifically sound clinical reasoning and decision-making. It provides participants with active learning exercises designed to advance their skills and abilities to critically evaluate scientific evidence and clinical trials and to effectively incorporate into daily practice significant findings that lead to effective and safe patient care.
More information on the BCPS recertification professional development program is available at www.accp.com/careers/boardbcps.aspx.
“Antimicrobial Resistance: Prevention and Management Strategies” will provide an overview of current and emerging antimicrobial resistance patterns. Expert educators and practitioners will discuss clinical and cost-effective prevention and management strategies for methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA), vancomycin-resistant Enterococcus (VRE), and Clostridium difficile (C. difficile) infections that help inform individual patient care and formulary decisions. Sessions on antimicrobial stewardship and formulary and pharmacoeconomic considerations will further guide the provision of cost-effective services that improve patient outcomes.
