pharmacologyforadvancedpracticeclinicians|SF,DC,LV|#pharm132CONTEMPORARYFORUMS.COMWith the advent of the affordable Care act and thespotlight on primary care, prevention and chronicdisease management, advanced practice Clinicianswill play a significant role in caring for the largevolume of patients expected to impact our healthcare system. Knowledge about therapeutic effects,monitoring patient response, and managing sideeffects are all critical aspects of effective prescribingpractices. Having prescriptive authority and beingup-to-date on contemporary pharmacotherapyfor acute and chronic conditions are essential forproviding comprehensive care and competing inthis changing health care environment.Now in its 19thyear, pharmacology for advancedpractice Clinicians, continues to be the “go-to”course for prescriptive authority, whether you aremaking initial application or meeting the requirementsfor renewal. Many who have taken the course alsoreturn periodically for a “refresher” on what’s newin pharmacotherapy. Our Principal Instructors,Alan Agins, PhD and Jody Agins, MSN, RNP, FNP/GNP-BC, WCC, have designed a comprehensivecourse which addresses the pharmacology andtherapeutic uses of current medications used forprimary care, as well as common clinical issuesand concerns related to prescribing. The contentis brought to life through case study discussionand question and answer sessions throughout thecourse, and additional clinician faculty membersenhance learning through specialty application.please note: States’ requirements for prescriptive authority vary.Please contact your State Board of Nursing regarding educational requirements.ContentsAccreditation ........................... 2conference Schedules..........4conference faculty ...............8online ce Library...................9Host city Information......... 10pull-out insErt ContEntsconference Information......
