STOCKTON, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–
Therapeutic Research Center (TRC), publisher of the Pharmacist’s Letter, expands its offerings into the hospital pharmacy arena with Hospital Pharmacist’s e-Letter. The new online offering ushers in a suite of products from the trusted pharmacy resource with the goal of aligning the medication management team in the hospital environment to help standardize procedures and improve performance, quality and outcomes.
The new Hospital Pharmacist’s e-Letter will provide TRC’s trademarked unbiased, actionable recommendations on medication use, with a specific focus on the unique needs of hospital pharmacy departments. Like all other Letter products, Hospital Pharmacist’s e-Letter will cover the field’s most timely and important topics and offer clear, useful medication recommendations in a concise and easy-to-read style that gets right to the heart of the matter.
“Hospital pharmacies are measured by the Joint Commission based on quality improvement and face a set of challenges somewhat unique from those encountered in a retail setting,” says Melissa Blair, Associate Editor for TRC. “For example, they often manage acute exacerbations and chronic conditions, and face strict quality standards and safety processes. They may also be more concerned with staff education.” As a result, Blair points out, they need to dive deeper into certain medication issues and also focus on reducing readmissions, improving quality scores, and managing transitions of care. Hospital Pharmacist’s e-Letter is strategically poised to provide the education and training hospital pharmacists need to support these goals.
Hospital Pharmacist’s e-Letter is the first product to be released in the hospital suite. Additional products and services that are also available for hospitals now include:
- Joint Commission compliance courses such as sterile compounding, adult dosing, and medication reconciliation
- Medicare competency training such as HIPAA and Fraud, Waste & Abuse
- Pharmacy Technicians University, the only online, interactive training program designed specifically for pharmacy technician certification and training with a full range of interactive learning modules that take technicians beyond certification to qualification.
Coming soon are complimentary e-Letters for prescribers and technicians and a family of new CE/CME credit opportunities including live webinars and ACPE-accredited continuing education developed specifically for hospitals.
