Content

Releasing September 19, 2018, this application-based BCPP Recertification product provides the opportunity to study a complex psychiatric schizophrenia case comorbid with a medical diagnosis and associated complex medication regimen. The 2018 case is focused on schizophrenia with participants following one patient through several encounters over a period of time. The activity design allows for the opportunity to apply evidence-based pharmacological and/or nonpharmacological treatment strategies and monitoring recommendations specific to patient needs and their pertinent medical, psychosocial, family, cultural and socioeconomic issues. Instructional webinars and a comprehensive, referenced key extends the value of the activity long after completion.

The From Theory to Practice Case Series includes electronic access to:

  • A complex patient case consisting of 3 encounters over a period of time.
  • Three instructional, pre-recorded webinars accompanying each encounter. 
  • A comprehensive, referenced case key and commentaries of use long after the activity is completed.
  • Five (5) hours of ACPE credit and 5 hours of BCPP Recertification credit achieved by successfully completing the online CPNP recertification examination. ACPE credit is reported to CPE Monitor at nabp.net within 48 hours after successful completion of the examination. BCPP Recertification credit is earned and reported within the year the assessment is successfully completed (2018 or 2019).
  • Access to the CPNP testing center with exam submission due by March 19, 2019
