PHRM 703 - Hospital Pharmacy APPE

Prerequisites, PHRM 555 , PHRM 558 , PHRM 561 , PHRM 579 , PHRM 584 , PHRM 691 . This is a six-week advanced practice pharmacy experience based in a health-system (institutional) practice setting. Under the guidance of an experiential educator, student pharmacists will generally advance knowledge and skills applicable to providing direct patient-care in this practice setting including but not limited to: processing medication orders; preparation (sterile and non-sterile compounding, handling cytotoxic agents, repackaging bulk units into unit dose units, maintenance of crash carts) and provision of patient-specific medications and other products for administration to patients; medication reconciliation and discharge medication counseling and information hand-off to other healthcare professionals in other settings caring for the patient. Students will also learn about the management of the practice including operations and services relating to systems for drug distribution and drug control (i.e., billing, inventory management, delivery and floor stock procedures, managing controlled substances, formulary processes, etc.); and, the relationship of the department within the institution and health system. The course content/experience will vary by site and will be altered to accommodate a student pharmacists’ previous experiences and/or highlight an educator’s area of expertise. P/NP. (Offered every year.) 6 credits
