Come Together Right Now: Connecting Lipid Guidelines with Novel Non-Statin Therapies

The release of the ACC/AHA Lipid Guidelines in 2013 changed clinical practice by moving away from LDL-C specific goals and emphasizing statin therapy for all at-risk patients.  With the recent FDA approval of PSCK9 inhibitors into the US pharmaceutical market, there is question as to where these extremely potent LDL-C reducing drugs fit into current guidelines. This program will discuss the evidence behind the use of PCSK9 inhibitors and other non-statin therapies in high-risk patients and debate where these agents fit into current practice.

Target Audience: Primarily clinical pharmacists; however, all pharmacists may benefit as hyperlipidemia management is encountered in all areas of pharmacy practice

CE Credit: 1.5 hours

Cost Justifying the Pharmacist as a Member of the Healthcare Team: Documentation beyond the SOAP Note

This program will start with a discussion of the current state of pharmacists as members of the healthcare team in various settings and why we need to be able to justify our positions. Many hospital and ambulatory care pharmacists document in SOAP notes and have limited ability to search or report on their interventions. Conversely, community pharmacists are restricted to documenting prescription errors and brief interventions, and are often not documenting their clinical thoughts or interventions. This discussion will explore available options for pharmacists in any setting and allow participants to brainstorm documentation strategies for their practice settings.

Target Audience: All pharmacists

CE Credit: 1 hour

Presenter: Sarah Krahe Dombrowski, PharmD, BCACP, Assistant Professor of Pharmacy Practice, LECOM School of Pharmacy
