Home Study CPEs for Pharmacists

Looking for continuing education credits? While we would all love to travel the world and attend conferences at exotic locations to gather our CPEs, sometimes that just isn’t an option. So for those of you who need credits, but can’t take a prolonged “vacation,” we have compiled a broad range of home-study courses from the American Pharmacy Association.

These courses can be completed right from the comfort of your home and cover everything from effective communication to clinical patient care and access to services. Here is an overview of some of our favorites:

Effective Communication: Receiving and Providing Feedback

This is a webinar designed to develop leadership and communication skills using practical advice and real-world examples. Objectives for the course include describing effective methods of communication, both written and oral, discussing effective feedback techniques, examining the use of constructive criticism and describing how to apply feedback.

What Could Go Wrong? Preventing Errors Before They Happen.

This course examines the problem of medication errors in the healthcare system. It focuses on ways to make the medication use system safer, rather than relying on the infallibility of individual healthcare providers.
