Target Audience

This self-study activity serves as an educational tool for pharmacists seeking Board Certified Psychiatric Pharmacist (BCPP) Recertification credit and other pharmacists and health care providers seeking advanced education in patient management, disease state management, information management, and health policy and practice management in the field of psychiatric pharmacy.

Content

The articles selected by CPNP Recertification Editorial Board for the Literature Analysis are based on a 7-year curriculum. This curriculum is developed using the Board of Pharmaceutical Specialties' Content Outline for the Psychiatric Pharmacy Specialty Certification Examination as a guideline. Since CPNP became the sole BCPP Recertification provider in 2008, the articles are chosen to cover the three content domains - Domain I: Patient Management, Domain 2: Information Management, Domain 3: Health Policy and Practice Management.

The Literature Analysis is self-study, online only, application-based continuing pharmacy education (CPE) activity. An application-based CPE activity requires that participants apply the information learned. The examination for this product often features case studies requiring that the participant apply the principles learned through the readings. The 2022 Literature Analysis product is debuting a new format for 2 of the 10 hours of the product. Article 1 on “Meta-Analysis of Randomized Controlled Trials on the Efficacy and Safety of Donepezil, Galantamine, Rivastigmine, and Memantine for the Treatment of Alzheimer’s Disease” is complimented by a 1 hour recorded webinar by Dr. Ryan Carnahan, PharmD, BCPP, assisting you as the learner in making accurate interpretations of the article. You are encouraged to read the article first and then watch the webinar while keeping the article open for frequent referral back to sections as guided by Dr. Carnahan. Including this new format, the Literature Analysis components consist of:

  • Electronic access to all required journal articles needed to prepare for the online assessment.
  • The webinar that accompanies article #1 as provided by Dr. Ryan Carnahan.
  • For pharmacists, 10 hours of ACPE credit and 10 hours of BCPP Recertification credit achieved by successfully completing the online CPNP recertification examination.
  • Access to the CPNP testing center with exam submission due by or on November 30, 2022.
  • The opportunity to provide CPNP feedback on the entire product including this new format for 2 out of the 10 hours of content.
