The 2018 Oncology Pharmacy Preparatory Review and Recertification Course will be held May 3 – May 5, 2018 in San Diego, California and will offer 21.75 contact hours of live continuing pharmacy education credit. An additional 3.5 contact hours of home study continuing pharmacy education credit will also be available following the live course (available July 1, 2018). The course is designed to assist the experienced clinician in identifying knowledge gaps in the various content domains covered on the BPS board examination and assumes the learner meets the eligibility requirements to sit for the BPS specialty examination. This course is reviewed every year to incorporate symptom management topics within disease state presentations whenever possible to mimic BPS exam questions and real world scenarios. The fall examination is scheduled to be administered in September and October of 2018.

The Oncology Pharmacy Preparatory Review and Recertification Course is approved by the Board of Pharmacy Specialties for recertification credit for Board Certified Oncology Pharmacists (BCOP). This course is an excellent way for the BCOP to get updates on a broad array of oncology topics.

Oncology Pharmacy Preparatory Review and Recertification Course

The Oncology Pharmacy Preparatory Review and Recertification Course is developed for pharmacy professionals preparing for the Oncology Pharmacy Specialty Certification Examination administered by the Board of Pharmacy Specialties (BPS) and for those seeking a self-paced review and refresher of relevant disease states. In addition, Board Certified Oncology Pharmacy specialists (BCOPs) seeking recertification through continuing education may use the course to earn recertification credit.

Oncology Home Study Syllabus for Recertification

Offered twice a year the Oncology Pharmacy Home Study Syllabus for Recertification consists of a collection of journal articles that focuses on advances across the four domains of oncology specialty practice. The home study syllabus will be a series of current articles from the primary oncology literature, each with learning objectives, and a web-based posttest covering the full series of articles. The articles will be made available either in print or through electronic access, depending upon availability from the copyright holder.

BCOP Clinical Sessions

The BCOP Clinical Sessions, available both live and as a Web-based program for home study, will explore cutting-edge and contemporary therapeutic topics. The BCOP Clinical Sessions will be presented live annually as embedded programming at the ACCP Annual Meeting (October), and repeated live at the ASHP Midyear Clinical Meeting (December). The sessions will be audio recorded as an online product for home study on demand, following their initial live presentation at the ACCP Annual Meeting. Successful completion of a web-based posttest will be required to earn recertification credit for the clinical sessions, live or home study.

Oncology Pharmacy Webinar Series

The webinar series, presented twice annually with a new topic for each presentation, will be offered live, for distance learning, and audio recorded, for home study. The webinar series will employ a flipped classroom instructional approach. Registrants will be assigned pre-readings to provide background on the subject matter for the webinar, and a web-based pre-assessment, to determine their understanding of the pre-assigned material. This presentation will be audio recorded for online access at a specific time. Immediately after this presentation, participants in the live webinar format will participate, via webinar, in a live, prescheduled question and answer sessions lead by faculty. This session, to be audio recorded for home study, will allow participants to ask clarifying questions about the content and its application to practice.
