CCSAP 2016-2018



An ACCP Publication

ACCP’s Self-Assessment Programs are home study series that provide clinical pharmacists with pertinent therapeutic updates to enhance their practice skills and improve patient outcomes.

CCSAP has been approved by the Board of Pharmacy Specialties (BPS) as a professional development activity for Board Certified Critical Care Pharmacist (BCCCP) recertification.

Updates to Improve Outcomes

CCSAP is a series of continuing education activities that cover the latest information on a specific therapeutic area. Topics are drawn from the BPS content outline for the BCCCP certification examination, then the latest medical literature is reviewed for evidence-based updates to improve patient outcomes.

Pharmacists can use CCSAP to develop and assess their knowledge in the science and application of pharmacotherapy. This information can be integrated into structured training programs or assist advanced-level practitioners in maintaining their clinical competence.

CCSAP 2016-2018 Series Editors
Boucher Haas

Leading the new edition are Series Editor Bradley A. Boucher, Pharm.D., FCCP, BCPS, MCCM, Associate Dean for Institutional Initiatives and Operations, College of Pharmacy, University of Tennessee Health Science Center, Memphis, Tennessee; and Series Editor Curtis E. Haas, Pharm.D., FCCP, BCPS, Director of Pharmacy, University of Rochester Medical Center, Rochester, New York.

Chapters Packed with Information

Each CCSAP release is an online book made up of peer-reviewed chapters that update a specific therapeutic area. To help integrate this information into practice, chapters include the following, where appropriate:

  • In-text references to the latest research
  • Graphics that directly relate information to clinical practice
  • Full-color photographs, illustrations, and audio and video files
  • Hyperlinks to assessment tools, patient resources, and the latest guidelines
  • Algorithms and Practice Points (the take-home messages)

Learner self-assessment is by high-level, case-based, multiple-choice questions that test application of the material to real-world practice scenarios. Explained answers are a vital component of the learning process and include a detailed rationale for each self-assessment question with hyperlinks to citations that support optimal decision-making. For more on ACPE and BCCCP credit from CCSAP, see below.

Two Formats, One Low Price

The principal CCSAP release is an online book, provided as an interactive PDF that can be saved to the desktop or printed. The latest version of Adobe Reader (available free) offers functionality such as highlighting or adding “sticky notes” to the text. Intra-document and external links connect you immediately to the information you want and need. As each book is released, the online book is automatically added to your “My Account” page on the ACCP Web site. A required posttest must be submitted within 4 months of the release date to be eligible for BCCCP recertification credit.

In addition, the e-media version of CCSAP is included with any purchase. Perfect for “anywhere, anytime” access, the eBook allows CCSAP information to be viewed on an e-reader, tablet, iOS or Android smart phone.

Continuing Pharmacy Education Credit
ACPE

The American College of Clinical Pharmacy is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Pharmacy Education (ACPE) as a provider of continuing pharmacy education. The number of continuing pharmacy education contact hours earned for successfully completing a posttest varies with each CCSAP module. The ACPE-approved continuing pharmacy education credit associated with each CCSAP module is available for 3 years after the date of release. All CCSAP releases are application-based activities.

BCCCP Recertification Credit

Subscribers seeking board certified pharmacotherapy specialist (BCCCP) recertification credit from a CCSAP module must submit the required posttest within 4 months after the book’s release. Recertification credits earned from a passing score on an CCSAP module are forwarded to BPS. For statements of credit, visit www.mycpemonitor.net.

This nine-book CCSAP series is designed to provide sufficient opportunity for the 100 credits needed for BCCCP recertification by continuing education.

ACPE Continuing Pharmacy Education Credit

To receive ACPE continuing pharmacy education credit for a CCSAP module, the posttest must be completed online and submitted within 3 years of the book’s release. ACPE continuing pharmacy education credit is awarded for posttest scores of 50% or greater. Answers to the self-assessment questions, with detailed rationale and supporting references, are made available online to subscribers after the close of the BCCCP testing period.
