The latest release in ACCP's popular Pharmacotherapy Self-Assessment Program (PSAP) focuses on evidence-based management strategies for infectious diseases commonly affecting patient populations, with a focus on new antimicrobial regimens and antimicrobial stewardship.

Kathryn R. Matthias, Pharm.D., BCPS-AQ ID

Infectious Diseases contains four learning modules with a total available 19.0 continuing pharmacy education (CPE) credits. The book content was developed under the leadership of Faculty Panel Chair Kathryn R. Matthias, Pharm.D., BCPS-AQ ID.

Chapters in the first module review the most recent evidence in the treatment of urinary tract and hepatitis C virus infections. The second module includes chapters on lower respiratory tract infections and rhinosinusitis. The third module presents the most recent evidence of ophthalmic and ear infections management. The fourth module provides an update on the management of lung abscesses, as well as a chapter on Clostridium difficile infection.

Each PSAP release comes in two full-color online formats: (1) interactive PDFs you can save to your desktop or print; and (2) an e-media version you can view on an e-reader, tablet, iOS or Android smart phone. Each release also includes the popular PSAP Audio Companion, audio MP3 files that can be downloaded to a player or burned onto a CD. A one-color softbound print book is available for an added fee.

All PSAP chapters 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. Graphic features focus on pivotal studies, patient care scenarios, and take-home points that can be readily integrated into clinical practice.
