Continuing Pharmacy Education Credit
The American College of Clinical Pharmacy and the American Society of Health-System Pharmacists are accredited by the Accreditation Council for Pharmacy Education as a provider of continuing pharmacy education.
Heart failure remains a major public health concern and the leading discharge diagnosis of those 65 years of age and older in the United States. Heart Failure, the first release in the new Cardiology Self-Assessment Program (CardSAP) series, describes the pharmacotherapy that forms the cornerstone of treatment of this syndrome and its subsequent comorbidities, as well as the management of major cardiovascular conditions closely married to this syndrome.
The target audience for Heart Failure is board-certified cardiology pharmacy specialists caring for a patient with heart failure including both heart failure with reduced and preserved ejection fraction.
Heart Failure has three modules offering a total of 13.0 available continuing pharmacy education (CPE) credits. The book was developed under the leadership of Faculty Panel Chair Robert L. Page II, Robert L Page II, PharmD, MSPH, BCPS (AQ-Cards), BCGP , FCCP, FASHP, FAHA, FHFSA.
The first module includes chapters on aspects of management of the patient with end-state and the evidence as well as the core principles for transitions of care from hospital to home. The second module provides vision into the newer and potentially future therapeutic modalities in the management of heart failure, as well as, addresses therapeutic options for those with heart failure with preserved and recovered ejection fraction. Making up the third module are interactive case features on the management of anemia and diabetes which are both common place in patients with heart failure, as well as, the emerging role of biomarkers in addressing diagnosis and therapeutic considerations.
Each CardSAP release has continuing education activities that cover the most recent published data (past 3–5 years) on a specific therapeutic area or patient-care problem. This content is provided as a full-color electronic book (interactive PDF) with high-level updates in three formats:
- Traditional review-style chapters
- Interactive cases (a series of webpages, each introduced by a sample case-based question)
- Recorded webcast (PowerPoint presentation; includes PDF of the transcribed narrative)
CardSAP chapters and features are fully referenced, with clickable hyperlinks to literature compilers such as PubMed. Other links provide ready access to clinical practice guidelines, official recommendations, and patient assessment tools. Graphics focus on pivotal studies, patient care scenarios, and take-home points that can be readily integrated into clinical practice. Included with every purchase is an e-media version you can view on an e-reader, tablet, and iOS or Android smart phone.
