In collaboration with the 13th Asian Conference on Clinical Pharmacy, the American College of Clinical Pharmacy will offer a preconference symposium titled "Being a Clinical Pharmacist: Applying Knowledge and Skills to Team-Based Patient Care." The goal of the symposium is to demonstrate what clinical pharmacists do and how they do it.
This all-day symposium will be held on September 12, 2013. By the end of the symposium, participants will be able to explain how the clinical pharmacist applies pharmacotherapeutic knowledge and skills in real-life settings to effect improvement in patients’ medication-related outcomes using illustrative patient cases in internal medicine, cardiology, nephrology, psychiatry, and infectious diseases.
The following sessions will comprise the symposium:
- An Overview of the Clinical Pharmacist’s Practice
- Getting the Work Done on Hospital Wards and in the Clinic
- Internal Medicine Cases: Emphasis on Recommending Therapy
- Psychiatry Cases: Emphasis on Patient and Drug Pharmacotherapy Assessment
- Cardiology Cases: Emphasis on Monitoring
- Internal Medicine Cases: Emphasis on Patient Education
- Infectious Diseases Cases: Emphasis on Consultations
- Chronic Kidney Disease Cases: Emphasis on Collaboration

Certificates of attendance will be issued to participants at the conclusion of the symposium. More information on the symposium is available at http://www.accp2013.org/accp123/files/uploads/hai-phong-flyer.pdf. To register, visit http://www.accp2013.org/accp123/regonline/pay.php.
