NPS launches online practice review for pharmacists
Building on the 2011 paper version, Pharmacy Practice Review: Reducing cardiovascular disease (CVD) risk, pharmacists can now complete the activity online and immediately receive tailored feedback and individual patient management plans to support ongoing care for their patients.
NPS clinical adviser Danielle Stowasser said the online activity was a first for NPS.
"We are excited to be working more and more in the online space and to be providing pharmacists with the flexibility and individualisation that online activities can offer," Dr Stowasser said.
The activity gives pharmacists access to the latest evidence-based clinical information on cardiovascular disease risk and optimal use of statins, and where indicated, ezetimibe.
Other benefits for pharmacists participating in the new online activity include comparison with peer group results, access to expert commentary, immediate availability of a completion certificate so pharmacists can log their CPD points; and access to the activity on an ongoing basis so pharmacists can continue to reflect on their encounters with patients using statins and/or ezetimibe.
"We urge pharmacists to register for the online NPS Pharmacy Practice Review and see for themselves what a valuable investment of their time it is," Dr Stowasser said.
The activity is free and accredited as a Group 2 activity for 16 credit points.
