The Board of Pharmacy Specialties (BPS) has approved the 2013 Oncology Pharmacy Specialty Recertification Home Study Syllabus as one of three components in a professional development program that can be used by Board Certified Oncology Pharmacists (BCOPs) as an alternative to the written recertification examination. The Home Study Syllabus consists of a collection of journal articles that focuses on advances across the four domains of oncology specialty practice.
- Breast Cancer
- Chronic Myeloid Leukemia
- Gynecologic Cancers
- Head and Neck Cancer
- Hematopoietic Stem Cell Transplantation
- Lung Cancer
- Multiple Myeloma
- Oncology Drug Literature: Biostatistics and Study Design
- Pancreatic, Stomach, and Liver Tumors
- Pain Management
- Pediatric Cancer
- Prostate Cancer
- Skin Cancer
- Symptom Management
The 2013 Oncology Pharmacy Specialty Recertification Home Study Syllabus includes a Web-based recertification test. BCOPs who read each article included in the Home Study Syllabus and successfully complete the Web-based post test on the content of the articles will earn 15.0 hours of oncology recertification credit. Please note that the series must be completed in its entirety. Partial recertification credit is not available.
The post test must be submitted by November 30, 2013 to be eligible for recertification credit. The Home Study Syllabus is priced at $270 for members of ACCP, the American Society of Health-System Pharmacists (ASHP) and the Hematology/Oncology Pharmacy Association (HOPA) and $395 for nonmembers.
ACCP, as the official provider approved by BPS, will record and report recertification credit earned in this program directly to BPS. The professional development program for oncology recertification is offered by ACCP in conjunction with ASHP and HOPA.
