Activity Overview

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 – HIV and Hepatitis C: This module focuses on pre- and post-exposure prophylaxis of HIV, as well as management of patients with HIV and/or Hepatitis C.

Module 1B – Infectious Diseases Potpourri: This module focuses on new information that is important to the infectious diseases pharmacist, including management of penicillin allergy, considering recombinant zoster vaccine in immunosuppressed patients, and prevention and management of tuberculosis.

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.
