Integrated throughout the meeting, these five hours of recertification programming cover:

  • Addressing Ambivalence and Non-Adherence to Mental Health Treatment
  • Using Pharmacogenomics to Optimize Mental Health Comprehensive Medication Management

Registered Annual Meeting attendees desiring Recertification credit must also purchase the Clinical Application Series to gain access to the Recertification testing center.

The Clinical Application Series is an application-based continuing pharmacy education (CPE) activity. An application-based CPE activity requires that participants apply the information learned. This is the level of learning preferred by accrediting bodies and the Board of Pharmacy Specialties (BPS). In an application-based CPE activity, the learning objectives are written at a higher level in order to assess the learners’ ability to use the information that is learned by reading relevant literature that reflects current level of practice by Board Certified Psychiatric Pharmacists. The examination for this product often features case studies requiring that the participant apply the principles learned through the readings. These types of application-based questions tend to be more challenging than knowledge-based questions that merely assess recall of information.
