ASHP Online Psychiatric Pharmacy Review Course Now Available

Donna Young

Head for the ASHP Web site for help in preparing for the Board of Pharmaceutical Specialties certification examination in psychiatric pharmacy.

The 2001 Psychiatric Pharmacy Practice Certification Examination Review Course provides users with a concentrated update on the relevant diseases, therapies, pharmacology, and research and regulatory issues. Participants will hear an audio presentation and view accompanying slides for up to 15 course modules. After viewing the presentation, pharmacists can complete the tests online and receive their grad and certificate immediately. The module "Developmental Disorders and Aggression" can be viewed as a sample without charge.

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 Janssen Pharmaceutica Research Foundation.
