Infectious Diseases Self-Assessment Program (IDSAP)

ACCP's Self-Assessment Programs are home study series that provide clinical pharmacists with pertinent therapeutic updates to enhance their practice skills and improve patient outcomes.
BCIDP Credit IDSAP has been approved by the Board of Pharmacy Specialties (BPS) as a professional development activity for Board Certified Infectious Diseases Pharmacist (BCIDP) recertification. The IDSAP releases are designed to provide credit availability toward BCIDP recertification.

The Infectious Diseases Self-Assessment Program provides two releases per year (May and November). The content of these releases will assist the pharmacist in analyzing the latest evidence-based information and in translating that information into patient care to improve outcomes.

Each IDSAP 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 an electronic book (interactive PDF) with high-level updates designed, as appropriate to the topic, 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)

Pharmacists can use IDSAP to develop and assess their knowledge in the science and application of pharmacotherapy. This information can be integrated into structured training programs or assist advanced-level practitioners in maintaining their clinical competence.

The IDSAP Series Editors design each year’s releases by drawing from the domains, tasks, and knowledge statements in the BPS Infectious Diseases Pharmacist Certification Content Outline/Classification System. These two program leaders are:

Brian Irons, Pharm.D., BCPS, BC-ADM Series Editor, Elizabeth S. Dodds Ashley, Pharm.D., MHS, BCPS, Associate Professor of Medicine, Division of Infectious Diseases Duke, University School of Medicine, Director of Operations, Duke Antimicrobial Stewardship Outreach Network (DASON) Durham, North Carolina
Ashley H. Meredith, Pharm.D., MPH, FCCP, BCIDP, BCPS, CDCES Series Editor Alan E. Gross, Pharm.D., FCCP, BCPS, BCIDP, Clinical Associate Professor, Department of Pharmacy Practice, University of Illinois at Chicago College of Pharmacy, Infectious Diseases Pharmacist, Hospital Pharmacy Services, University of Illinois Hospital and Health Sciences System, Chicago, Illinois

Working with a Faculty Panel Chair (guest editor), the Series Editors refine the list of chapters and features so that only the most relevant topics are updated in each release. Members of the faculty panel collaborate on the content outline for each chapter and feature, ensuring a complete review of published evidence on that clinical topic. Generalist BCIDP reviewers join the editorial process to enhance the material’s appropriateness for the recertifying audience. The result is an evidence-based update that can be used to self-assess clinical skills and improve patient outcomes.

Each IDSAP release is an online book made up of peer-reviewed chapters and electronic features covering a specific therapeutic area. Feature formats (either the interactive case or the recorded webcast) will vary by topic to provide the best method of relating information to clinical practice.

Review-style chapters include:

  • In-text references to the latest published data
  • Full-color photographs, illustrations, and graphics
  • Hyperlinks to assessment tools, online resources, and the latest guidelines
  • Patient Care Scenarios (practice application exercises)
  • Practice Points (the take-home messages)

Interactive cases include:

  • In-text references to the latest published data
  • Illustrations and graphics
  • Hyperlinks to assessment tools, online resources, and the latest guidelines
  • Case-based examples that lead to detailed feedback
  • Practice Points (the take-home messages)

Recorded webcasts include:

  • PowerPoint slides with recorded narrative
  • On-slide references to the latest published data
  • Photographs, illustrations, and graphics
  • Hyperlinks to assessment tools, online resources, and the latest guidelines
  • Patient Care Scenarios (practice application exercises)
  • Practice Points (the take-home messages)

Self-Assessment Questions are found at the end of each chapter, interactive case, or recorded webcast. These high-level, case-based, multiple-choice questions test application of the material to real-world practice. Explained answers, provided after the close of BCIDP testing, are a vital component of the learning process and include a detailed rationale for each self-assessment question with hyperlinks to citations that support optimal decision-making. For more on ACPE and BCIDP credit from IDSAP, see below.

Once purchased, the current IDSAP release (and any previously released IDSAPs) will appear in your My Account page under My Products. The principal IDSAP release is an online book (interactive PDF) that can be saved to the desktop or printed. The latest version of Adobe Reader (available free) offers functionality such as highlighting or adding “sticky notes” to the text. Intra-document and external links connect you immediately to the information you want and need. As each book is released, it will be automatically added to your My Account page.

An e-media format, provided in addition to the interactive PDF, is perfect for “anywhere, anytime” access. This format allows IDSAP information to be viewed on an e-reader, tablet, iOS or Android smart phone.

Information on using

For assessment purposes, IDSAP content is grouped into learning modules. Each release consists of 3–4 modules; each module contains 2–3 review-style chapters or 2–3 electronic features. The Self-Assessment Questions in each module are accessed from the My Products section of your My Account page. Please note the following:

  • Only completed tests are eligible for credit; no partial or incomplete tests will be processed.
  • You may complete one or all available modules for credit.
  • Tests may not be submitted more than one time.

BCIDP Recertification Credit:

BCIDP Credit

To be eligible to receive BCIDP recertification credit from an IDSAP module, the required posttest must be submitted within the 6-month period after the book’s release. Test deadlines are listed on the first page of every release. The passing point to earn BCIDP recertification credit is based on an expert analysis of the assessment items in each posttest module. Any posttest submitted before the BCIDP test deadline that meets this passing point will earn BCIDP recertification credits. These credits will be assigned as of the date of test submission and reported within 48 hours to BPS. For statements of recertification credit, visit www.bpsweb.org.

All participants must have a Board of Pharmacy Specialties (BPS) board certification credential number, BPS ID Number, and a BPS expiration date on file with ACCP for reporting purposes. To verify or update this information in your ACCP account, visit Licensure/Certification. Be sure to save your changes at the bottom of the page.

Questions regarding the number of hours required for BCIDP recertification should be directed to BPS at (202) 946-5026 or www.bpsweb.org. The ACCP Recertification Dashboard is a free online tool that can track recertification credits as they are earned through ACCP and schedule new opportunities for credits from upcoming ACCP professional development programs.

Continuing Pharmacy Education (CPE) Credit:

ACPE 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.

All IDSAP releases are application-based activities.

To receive ACPE CPE credit for a IDSAP module, a posttest must be submitted within 3 years after the book's release. Test deadlines are listed on the first page of every release. The passing point to earn ACPE CPE credit for a IDSAP module is 50%. Any posttest submitted before the ACPE deadline that scores 50% or greater will be awarded the appropriate CPE. These credits will be assigned as of the date of test submission and reported within 48 hours. For statements of CPE credit, visit www.mycpemonitor.net.

Posttest answers: The explained answers – with rationale and supporting references – will be posted 2 weeks after the BCIDP test deadline and will be available to anyone who has either (1) submitted a posttest or (2) waived the right to receive credit from a posttest (see below). Explained answers will be posted on the My Products section of the My Account page where posttests are accessed.

Waiving Credits: To access the explained answers without submitting a posttest, sign in to your My Account page, select the IDSAP book, and click on the waiver link for that module. By completing the waiver form for a module, you waive the opportunity to receive CPE credit for that module. After you submit a waiver, you will see a link to the PDF file that contains the answers for the module you waived. Answers will be available starting 2 weeks after the BCIDP test deadline.

National Association of Boards of Pharmacy - CPE Monitor Service

Provided through the collaborative efforts of the National Association of Boards of Pharmacy (NABP), the Accreditation Council for Pharmacy Education (ACPE), and ACPE-accredited providers, the CPE Monitor Service allows you to electronically keep track of continuing pharmacy education (CPE) credits from ACPE-accredited providers. ACPE-accredited providers, like ACCP, are responsible for transmitting this information to NABP to be stored in the CPE Monitor system. Statements of credit will be available at CPE Monitor, nabp.pharmacy/cpe-monitor-service/, within 2-3 business days after completion of this posttest. For more information on CPE Monitor please visit nabp.pharmacy/cpe-monitor-service/.

To transfer these credits to CPE Monitor on your behalf your NABP e-Profile ID Number and date of birth must be listed on your ACCP account. To verify or update this information in your ACCP account, visit Licensure/Certification. Be sure to save your changes at the bottom of the page.

Some international pharmacists do not use the CPE Monitor service. To verify or update this information in your ACCP account, visit Licensure/Certification. Check the box “I am an international pharmacist or I am not licensed to practice in the United States, and do not have an NABP e-Profile ID.” Be sure to save your changes at the bottom of the page.

Two IDSAP books are released each year; release dates are in May and November. To be eligible for BCIDP recertification credit, the required posttest must be submitted within 6 months of each book’s release. All IDSAP releases available for purchase are listed below.
