Are You Ready to Lead?

The pharmacy and health care professions are experiencing a unique period of transition. Within periods of transition sit great opportunities. Leaders will emerge to set the course for this period to develop the new health care systems that will impact our future patients and the health of our societies. Are you ready for the charge? Will you be the next leader in health care?

The Workshop

The Pharmacy Leadership Workshop is designed to help pharmacists with the “itch to lead” to improve their leadership skills in order to take on the changing health care marketplace. Through participation in a three-phase learning activity, pharmacists will be able to:

  • Assess, reflect, and understand one’s self in relation to leadership, the profession, and leading others
  • Acquire and utilize new skills when leading transitions and change 
  • Connect with likeminded colleagues, to form cohorts, and to share challenges and goals
  • Plan a 3-month personal professional development agenda to continue one’s leadership growth
  • Reflect and renew leadership growth

CPNP is pleased to work with the University of Texas Office of Continuing Pharmacy Education at CPNP 2020 to offer a Pharmacy Leadership workshop aimed at helping leaders develop new skills intended to change their behaviors to go from being a top individual contributor to a leader of people, organizations, and associations. This workshop is intended to turn the nebulous phrase of “leadership skills” to implementable actions. 

This workshop is designed around The Accreditation Council for Pharmacy Education’s (ACPE) Continuing Professional Development (CPD) model. Self-assessments, cohort discussions, networking, and a follow-up session a few months after the training extend the value of this day long workshop well past CPNP 2020.

Partially supported by a generous educational grant from the CPNP Foundation.

Applying Pharmacogenomics (PGx) to Clinical Practice Workshop

Target Audience: Pharmacists and Residents 

ACPE Credit: 3.0 hours through CPNP

Date: Sunday, April 26 (8:00-11:15 AM). This workshop is 3 hours in length, delivered in one morning

Registration Fees: 
Trainees -  $99 (On or Before 3/26/20); $139 (On or After 3/27/20)
Non-Trainees - $125 (On or Before 3/26/20); $165 (On or After 3/27/20)

Summary: The use of pharmacogenomics testing to guide the prescribing of psychotropic medications is increasing. The Clinical Pharmacogenetics Implementation Consortium (CPIC) released dosing guidelines for tricyclic antidepressants in 2016 and atomoxetine in 2019. Despite the availability of these and other guidelines, many pharmacists reported the lack of specialized education on how to interpret pharmacogenomics results. This program will develop and enhance pharmacists’ understanding of the current state of evidence for incorporating pharmacogenomics into patient care plans including when ordering a test is appropriate and how to interpret and educate patients on these results.
