ACCP Report - November 2018

New JACCP Feature Offers BCPS Credit


The new Journal of the American College of Clinical Pharmacy (JACCP) not only provides updates on a wide range of clinical pharmacy practice issues, but also serves as a new source for BCPS recertification credits.

Each February, June, and October issue of JACCP will contain the new PSAP in JACCP feature. This new interactive feature has been developed as an update to a topic published in the popular Pharmacotherapy Self-Assessment Program (PSAP). Each feature consists of two parts:

  1. A series of PDF pages with learning objectives, abbreviations list, baseline knowledge statements, additional readings, reference list, self-assessment questions, and a link to the interactive online feature. These pages are listed as PSAP in JACCP in the journal’s table of contents.
  2. A series of patient cases and practice scenarios, each with an annotated key that provides a detailed explanation and justification for the correct and incorrect answers. These webpages are accessed from a hyperlink included in the journal’s PDF pages.

PSAP in JACCP content is free for ACCP members. If members choose to purchase the continuing education credit, successful completion of the self-assessment questions will award board-certified pharmacotherapy specialists with 1.5 hours of BCPS recertification credit that is available for 6 months after the issue’s release. In addition, 1.5 hours of continuing pharmacy education (CPE) credit will be available for 3 years after the issue’s release. The front matter for each feature contains a hyperlink to purchase the required posttest for credit.

“Hepatitis C Infection” is the PSAP in JACCP feature in the journal’s October 2018 inaugural issue. For more information, see the journal’s table of contents when you click “Read JACCP” at www.accp.com/journal/jaccp.aspx.
