Prevent medication errors
You’ve heard about the recent Chicago Tribune investigation that discovered numerous instances in which pharmacists failed to identify potentially deadly drug interactions. The fact is, adverse interactions are preventable and YOU are the patients’ last line of defense.
This was a wake-up call to the profession; we simply cannot let this happen here.
Georgia pharmacists are shocked and disappointed, and we are going to bend over backwards to make sure that patients of Peach State pharmacies are kept safer from medication errors and dangerous interactions.
A major first step is this webinar. Take it, and have your employees take it.
Preventing Medication Errors in the Retail Setting:What Pharmacists MUST Know, Do, and Say is free for all Georgia pharmacists.
Several times during the year we offer diabetes certification, MTM certification, and of course the APhA’s immunization certification course.
We also have a lot of info on Diabetes Self Management Education — check out GPhA.org/dsme.
Practical Skills Refresher
Pharmacy school graduates and out-of-state transfers alike love GPhA’s Practical Skills Refresher Courses. Why? Because they’re concentrated, four-hour courses on the terminology, measurements, and procedures you’ll use in the day-to-day practice of pharmacy*.
If you’re a student pharmacist or a transfer to Georgia, you want this course for review of critical parts of the pharmacy school curriculum.
