The aim of this program is to provide pharmacy professionals with interactive, case-based curriculum that prepares them to apply pharmacokinetic principles and knowledge for the purpose of providing effective therapeutic drug monitoring for commonly used medication in paediatrics.
Therapeutic Drug Monitoring (TDM) represents a key clinical service provided by clinical pharmacists for paediatric patients. The goal of this service is to promote optimum outcomes by maintaining serum drug concentrations within a therapeutic range for the purposes of optimizing therapeutic efficacy and minimizing adverse effects.
The Therapeutic Drug Monitoring Certificate Program offers participants an interactive, case-based curriculum that prepares them to provide effective therapeutic drug monitoring for patients within their organization. Participants will engage in 25 hours of didactic lecture based curriculum and case study discussions at regular intervals throughout the course duration. Certification is obtained based on course attendance and participation, completion of assigned TDM Cases, and the learner’s ability to apply pharmacokinetic principles and knowledge of TDM practices via a final exam.
Benefits for Participants:
Develop desired skills while immersed in case-specific scenarios and paediatric-focused instruction in TDM practices.
Maximize individual and team performance through interactive curriculum that positions learners to utilize critical thinking and clinical reasoning to monitor specific drugs in a variety of paediatric care situations based on your patient population and environmental setting.
Benefits for Organizations:
Advance Paediatric Care
Enhance the quality of patient care as individuals and teams develop competency in providing service in therapeutic drug monitoring within their own individualized practice setting.
Sustain Practice Changes
Maximize individual and team performance through interactive curriculum that positions learners to utilize critical thinking and clinical reasoning to maintain serum drug concentrations and ensure therapeutic efficacy, thus minimizing adverse effects while reducing costs and time associated with drug preparation and dose administration.
