Registration deadline looming for Lab Values course

July 28, 2009

Practice Development’s new course, Practice Skills: Monitoring drug therapy using laboratory values, is ideal for pharmacists who wish to integrate laboratory values in the management of patients’ medication therapy. The registration deadline is Aug. 14, 2009.

Topics generated by you and other participants will be incorporated into active learning activities at the workshop and distance learning sessions. The course is based on a previous course, Interpreting Laboratory Values, offered from 2006 to 2008. If you have taken the Interpreting Laboratory Values course in the past, this experience will offer additional information and learning opportunities.

The course consists of a workshop and three distance learning sessions. The workshop, scheduled for Sept. 18 and 19, 2009 in Edmonton, features small group work, discussions, and review of patient encounters.

The distance learning sessions involve a considerable amount of learning outside of scheduled class time, including reading and preparation of a presentation to the class. The course involves assignments before and after the workshop. Support for your learning from instructors and course coordinators includes:  

  • Practice support – access to your peers and the Faculty for ongoing discussions about practice issues. There are vast opportunities to learn outside of formal course activities.
  • Technical support – for the eClass technology used in the course. There will be a technology practice session where you will see examples of a presentation and test your technology.
  • Educational support – Has it been a while since you have prepared a presentation?  We will provide educational support for you as you prepare your presentations and assignments.

For more information, please visit Practice Development’s website.
