Participating sites met with faculty experts composed of physician/pharmacist teams on VTE prophylaxis/treatment practices. Finally, Part III, six live webinars on distinct topics were presented live, then archived for continued availability.

Accelerating Antimicrobial Stewardship Programs
This series of activities focused on implementing change in antimicrobial stewardship programs. These interprofessional activities were accredited for continuing medical education (CME) for physicians and physician assistants and continuing education (CE) for pharmacists, nurse practitioners, and nurses. These educational activities were based on the experiences of institutions involved in ASHP’s MENTORED QUALITY IMPROVEMENT IMPACT PROGRAM℠: Accelerating Antimicrobial Stewardship Activities. Applicants from a nationwide pool were chosen to participate in this innovative mentorship program designed to accelerate the success of their antimicrobial stewardship programs, including personalized mentoring and an onsite visit by a team of pharmacist-physician experts. In the activities, participating institutions highlighted the outcomes of their quality improvement efforts and lessons learned as they discussed their virtual posters with interviewer William Zellmer.
Strategies for Insuring the Safe Use of Insulin Pens in the Hospital
This robust educational and quality improvement initiative for pharmacists was designed to facilitate the safe use of insulin and insulin pens in hospitals by using multiple components and a tiered learning approach. The first Tier was conducted via live and archived webinar, a written discussion guide and a robust resource center with tool kit. The central point for the initiative was the onepenonepatient.org website, which included articles, an online toolkit, interactive videos, and customizable resources for hospitals. The second Tier was an Ask the Experts webinar with archive building on educational already presented. The third Tier was 15 MENTORED QUALITY IMPROVEMENT IMPACT PROGRAMSSM and each participating site committed to at least one process improvement. Final reports from participants in the MENTORED QUALITY IMPROVEMENT IMPACT PROGRAMSSM were made available for other learners. This initiative achieved Level 5 Outcomes, resulted in a published supplement to AJHP and impacted over 63,000 pharmacists.
