Series Overview

The Literature Study Module provides immediate access to peer-selected, contemporary articles that are relevant to specialty practice. After learners read and analyze the articles and view the online presentation, they must successfully complete an online assessment to earn recertification credit.

Program Content

The Literature Study Module is intended for board certified pharmacists in need of recertification credit and is designed based on the content outline developed by the Board of Pharmacy Specialties (BPS). This module consists of 2 online home study activities (see table below). Each activity is designed to assess the learners’ ability to analyze and apply peer-selected contemporary articles to practice.

Module 1A – Clostridium difficile Infection Guidelines: This module focuses on guidelines for Clostridium difficile infections.

Module 1B – Infectious Diseases Potpourri: This module focuses on key studies in the treatment of infectious diseases, including bacteremia, endocarditis, and multidrug resistant gram negative infections.

Learners will be required to review the content and complete the associated online assessments. The learner must be able to correctly answer the questions based upon their interpretation of the content, as well as “baseline specialty specific knowledge and/or easily retrievable information.” For purposes of this Literature Study, “baseline specialty specific knowledge and/or easily retrievable information” is defined as product labeling and well-established standards of practice in the specialty practice.

These activities are part of the ASHP and ACCP professional development program for BCIDP recertification approved by the BPS.
