Specialty pharmacy is the fastest growing segment of pharmacy practice today and will continue for the foreseeable future. Specialty pharmacy impacts only a small percent of the population; however, the diseases and drug therapies are very complex and require a higher level of knowledge compared to more traditional diseases and drug therapies. The Certified Specialty Pharmacist Credential is designed to validate your professional expertise, elevate the status of the specialty pharmacy profession, differentiate yourself in a competitive job market, position yourself for handling limited or exclusively distributed drugs, position yourself to better serve payer requirements, and protect the public by improving their health outcomes and reducing medication errors.
The CSP Exam Preparatory Course will cover aspects of Clinical, Fulfillment, Intake and Outcomes that might be expected on the exam. Join expert faculty as key aspects of specialty pharmacy and the specialty pharmacist’s role are discussed. Key topics include the fundamentals and considerations for the patient intake process, as well as fulfillment workflows, quality assurance and dispensing channels. Outcomes measures and standards are covered, and clinical modules review persistence and adherence, specialty drug classes, indications, interactions, and more.
The target audience for this activity includes pharmacists.
