NEW ACCP Updates in Therapeutics® 2018

October 09, 2017

Mark your calendar for ACCP Updates in Therapeutics® 2018 meeting, to be held February 16–18, 2018, at the Hyatt Regency Jacksonville Riverfront hotel in Jacksonville, Florida.

Preparatory and Recertification Courses

ACCP Updates in Therapeutics® preparatory review and recertification courses are designed for pharmacy professionals who are preparing for the specialty certification examinations administered by the Board of Pharmacy Specialties, specialists seeking recertification through continuing education, and those seeking a refresher of pharmacotherapeutic management of specialty-specific conditions and contemporary clinical practice topics. Attendees will have the option to attend preparatory review and recertification courses in the following areas:

  • Ambulatory Care Pharmacy,
  • Pharmacotherapy,
  • Infectious Diseases Pharmacy (NEW), and
  • Cardiology Pharmacy (NEW).

ACCP Academy Programming

The three ACCP Academy programs—Leadership and Management, Teaching and Learning, and Research and Scholarship—will be offered in conjunction with Updates in Therapeutics® 2018. These professional development sessions will consist of required and elective modules, according to preestablished course schedules.

New! Patient-Centered, Team-Based Care: Focus on Outpatient Practice

In addition to ACCP’s preparatory/recertification courses and Academy programming, a new 3-day series of practice advancement programming will be held in Jacksonville. These sessions will combine a mix of plenaries and workshops with participant-contributed poster presentations and targeted “poster-team” walk-rounds. This is a one-of-a-kind learning opportunity for clinical pharmacists and trainees currently providing direct patient care in both primary care and specialty outpatient settings who wish to establish and/or enhance their services by implementing comprehensive medication management (CMM). Be among the first to benefit from research-tested learnings from ACCP’s “CMM Effectiveness and Implementation” grant in this evidence-based, hands-on approach to preparing attendees to return to their practices with tools and implementable plans to advance clinical services.

New! Call for Abstracts

All investigators in the field of clinical pharmacy and clinical pharmacology, ACCP members and nonmembers alike, are invited to submit abstracts to be considered for presentation at the NEW ACCP Updates in Therapeutics® 2018.
