Now in its 19th year, Pharmacology for Advanced Practice Clinicians, continues to be the "go-to" course for prescriptive authority, whether you are making initial application or meeting the requirements for renewal. Many who have taken the course also return periodically for a "refresher" on what's new in pharmacotherapy.
With the advent of the affordable Care act and the spotlight on primary care, prevention and chronic disease management, advanced practice Clinicians will play a significant role in caring for the large volume of patients expected to impact our health care system. Knowledge about therapeutic effects, monitoring patient response, and managing side effects are all critical aspects of effective prescribing practices. Having prescriptive authority and being up-to-date on contemporary pharmacotherapy for acute and chronic conditions are essential for providing comprehensive care and competing in this changing health care environment.
