Abstract:

Objective:
Our primary objective was to measure the impact of adding a pharmacist as a regular member on a University-based Continuing Medical Education Committee (CMEC). The results obtained from this analysis will be used to promote further collaborative continuing education programs for our faculty at Creighton University and other health care professionals.
Methods:
The mission of the CMEC is to provide high quality continuing medical education for physicians and other health care professionals. A pharmacist was made a regular committee member in January 2001. All programs scheduled from January 2001 until May 2006 were evaluated for providing pharmacy continuing education credit (PCEC). PCEC for these programs was applied for to the Nebraska Council For Continuing Pharmaceutical Education (NCCPE), a provider of continuing pharmacy education.
Results:
A total of 25 programs were identified to offer 126 hours of PCEC. Program topics were varied and included pain management, stroke, infectious diseases, women’s health, pediatrics, immunizations, and others. Pharmacist attendance at these programs has been variable. Evaluations indicate that pharmacists are greatly satisfied with these program offerings. Many of these programs also offered credit for physical therapy, occupational therapy and dentistry. The pharmacist is an active member of the CMEC, as well as the Program Review Subcommittee, and Health Sciences Education Committee.
Implications:
The addition of a pharmacist to a CMEC has created a multidisciplinary culture where routine consideration for pharmacy credit is evaluated during the program review process. The largest limitation to offering pharmacy credits within this structure is the NCCPE fees.
