Principle 4.1.d of the residency accreditation standards states, “Preceptors will create a description of their learning experience, and a list of activities to be performed by residents in the learning experience that demonstrates adequate opportunity to learn the educational goals and objectives assigned to the learning experience.” This program will help residency program directors and preceptors ensure that resident learning activities are appropriate for the objectives they are designed to teach, thereby helping the residency program meet this part of the standards.
Accreditation for Pharmacists
The American Society of Health-System Pharmacists is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Pharmacy Education as a provider of continuing pharmacy education. This knowledge-based activity provides 30 minutes (0.5 hour) of continuing pharmacy education credit.
Methods and Format
This is an online activity that includes reading content, answering questions, and completing learning assessment activities. Participants must read the content in its entirety, take the self-assessment post-test (minimum score of 70% is required; test can be taken twice), and complete the evaluation to receive continuing pharmacy education credit. Participants may print their official statements of continuing pharmacy education credit immediately. The estimated time to complete this activity is 30 minutes and is free of charge.
This continuing pharmacy education activity is beneficial for residency program directors and preceptors who would like to help their residency program comply with residency accreditation standards related to appropriateness of resident learning activities.
This program defines the learning taxonomies included in the objectives associated with ASHP’s accreditation standards. It also reviews details of the taxonomy that is most prevalent in the objectives, the cognitive domain, by defining and giving examples of the learning levels within this domain. Most important, it demonstrates how this information is used to ensure that resident learning activities designed to teach an objective is appropriate for its learning level, an area for which programs are frequently cited on accreditation site surveys.
After participating in this knowledge-based CPE activity, participants should be able to:
- Explain the importance of applying an understanding of learning taxonomies and levels to designing or selecting learning activities for specified objectives.
- Define the three learning taxonomies.
- Explain the six learning levels of the cognitive domain.
- Based on the learning level, determine the appropriateness of a learning activity for a specified objective.
