Target Audience

The Psychiatric Pharmacotherapy Review Course (Review Course) is designed for two primary audiences:

  1. It offers a review of current evidence-based pharmacotherapy for psychiatric and neurologic conditions for BCPP certified pharmacists seeking BCPP Recertification credit.
  2. It serves as an educational tool for other health care providers on current evidence-based pharmacotherapy for psychiatric and neurologic conditions.

NOTE: The Psychiatric Pharmacotherapy Review Course is a two-year product released at the start of even years (2018, 2020, 2022...). Given this revision cycle, individuals cannot repeat the current edition of the Review Course for BCPP Recertification or ACPE credit.

Content

Whether a certification candidate or a currently certified individual, the goal of the Review Course is to assist the practitioner in developing and maintaining contemporary knowledge and skills at the psychiatric pharmacy specialty level. The Review Course is not designed to develop more in-depth "subspecialty" knowledge. Course content is structured to provide a comprehensive review of the three psychiatric pharmacy domains specified by the Specialty Council in the current edition of the BPS Candidate's Guide. Inclusion of the Review Course as part of the recertification program is critical in ensuring the BCPP has systematically reviewed and assessed his/her core knowledge in the psychiatric specialty practice. This course is a knowledge-based educational program designed for pharmacists to acquire factual knowledge.

  • BCPPs recertifying via continuing education are required to complete the Review Course a minimum of once during their 7-year recertification cycle.
  • BCPPs recertifying via continuing education can use the Review Course a maximum of twice for recertification credit during their 7-year recertification cycle.
  • The Review Course is revised and released every other year on the even year (2018, 2020, 2022, ...). Given this revision cycle, individuals cannot repeat the current edition of the Review Course for BCPP Recertification or ACPE credit.

The course includes:

  • A book (additional shipping fee required) containing comprehensive outlines of the topics noted in the curriculum section below. The outlines consist of objectives, thorough subject related content, comprehensive reference listings by topic, and self-assessment questions and answers.
  • An e-book version of the book hosted VitalSource Bookshelf, a leading e-textbook solution. This e-book version allows you to take electronic notes as well as download the book to your desktop or mobile device for off line access.
  • For pharmacists, 20.0 contact hours of ACPE credit and 20.0 hours of recertification credit achieved by successfully completing the online CPNP recertification examination. BCPP Recertification credit is earned and reported within the year the assessment is successfully completed.

Consider the BCPP Prep Series for additional study aids. It provides recorded webinar presentations that are structured around this review course. The webinars feature case-based self-assessment questions with feedback.
