ACCP Report - March 2013

Try ACCP’s Specialty Recertification Products Before You Buy!


With new products, new formats, and the latest in evidence-based content, ACCP continues as the leader in board specialty recertification through home study. Now you can view chapter samples of the online, audio, and e-reader versions of both PSAP and ACSAP—together with detailed information on how to access these formats—before you buy!

Both of these home study series now feature a 4-month testing window for recertification credits. The Board of Pharmacy Specialties (BPS) has approved PSAP for use in Board Certified Pharmacotherapy Specialist (BCPS) recertification. Likewise, BPS has approved ACSAP for use in Board Certified Ambulatory Care Pharmacist (BCACP) recertification.

The new Ambulatory Care Self-Assessment Program (ACSAP) was launched on January 15 with the release of Pulmonary and Preventive Care. Series editors for this Web-based program are Betty J. Dong, Pharm.D., FCCP, FASHP, AAHIVP; and David P. Elliott, Pharm.D., FCCP, FASCP, CGP, AGSF.

Pulmonary and Preventive Care features 10 chapters on topics of great interest to the ambulatory care pharmacist, including New Therapies in Asthma, COPD, Acute Otitis Media and Acute Rhinosinusitis, Pulmonary Arterial Hypertension, Tobacco Cessation Strategies, Drug Therapy in Solid Organ Transplantation, Clinical Immunizations, and Implementing a Pharmacy-Based Immunization Program.

ACSAP releases are electronic books (PDFs) with enhanced interactivity. Intra-document links lead from the table of contents to specific chapter topics; authority links take you to current guidelines, online tools, or agency resources; and hundreds of reference links connect you to PubMed, the Cochrane Database, and other compilers so that you can access the original sources of this information.

For the busy clinician, ACSAP is available in an e-media package that allows access on phones, tablets, and e-readers. Try samples of Pulmonary and Preventive Care online before you buy.

Designed for those seeking BCPS recertification credits, the Pharmacotherapy Self-Assessment Program (PSAP) is ACCP’s premier home study tool. The latest edition was launched on January 15 with Cardiology/Endocrinology. Series editors for this program are John E. Murphy, Pharm.D., FCCP, FASHP; and Mary Wun-Len Lee, Pharm.D., FCCP, BCPS.

Cardiology/Endocrinology has nine chapters on a range of common patient care topics: New Pharmacotherapies for Type 2 Diabetes, Cardiovascular Complications in Patients with Diabetes, Osteoporosis, Acute Decompensated Heart Failure, Newer Antithrombotic Agents and Their Role in ACS, Newer Anticoagulation Strategies in Atrial Fibrillation, Heart Failure with Preserved Ejection Fraction, Clinical Pharmacogenomics: Potential Impact on CVD Outcomes, and Medication Safety: Implications for Cardiovascular Health.

The principal PSAP release is an electronic book (PDFs) with enhanced interactivity. Intra-document links lead from the table of contents to specific chapter topics; authority links take you to current guidelines, online tools, or agency resources; hundreds of reference links connect you to PubMed, the Cochrane Database, and other compilers, allowing you access to the original sources of this information.

Purchasers of the Print Package will also receive a softbound book delivered to their home or workplace. The E-Media Package provides access on phones, tablets, and e-readers, similar to the popular PSAP Audio Companion MP3 files, which can be downloaded to a listening device or burned onto a CD. PSAP also comes in an All-Format Package that combines all of these options. Try samples of the available Cardiology/Endocrinology formats online before you buy.
