ASHP Online Oncology Review Course Now Available

Kate Traynor

A convenient, easy-to-use tool to help pharmacists prepare for the Board of Pharmaceutical Specialties (BPS) certification examination in oncology pharmacy is now available on the ASHP Web site.

The review course provides users with a concentrated update on the diseases, therapies, regulatory issues, pharmacology, and statistics important to oncology pharmacy practice. Participants will hear an audio presentation and view accompanying slides for up to 19 course modules. After viewing the presentation, pharmacists can complete the tests online and receive their grade and certificate immediately.

Users can purchase individual modules or the complete course. The fee for access to an individual module is $30 for members and $37.50 for nonmembers. The complete course is available for $295 for ASHP members and $375 for nonmembers. All course handouts are available as PDF files. Access to an individual module is available for eight weeks; purchasers of the full course will have access to the materials for six months.

The course was developed by the ASHP Educational Services Division, with the assistance of the ASHP Section of Clinical Specialists, and is funded through an educational grant from Aventis Oncology.
