Geriatrics: Commission for Certification in Geriatric Pharmacy (ASCP)
The American Society of Consultant Pharmacists (ASCP) has launched a new web site for pharmacists seeking to prepare for the geriatric pharmacy practice examination administered by the Commission for Certification in Geriatric Pharmacy (CCGP) or who wish to expand their knowledge in geriatric pharmacotherapy.
The site offers pharmacists an accessible mechanism to perform an assessment of current knowledge in the field, followed by a "mapping" of the assessment against the learning objectives of the review course. This allows for the development of a personalized curriculum plan for the participant. Tutorials located on the site provide an interactive approach for instruction in the concepts of geriatric pharmacy practice. A practice examination is also offered which reflects the structure, format, and composition of the CCGP examination.
