I've just posted the case, transcript and exam from our third pharmacy
on-line CE program to http://www.olemiss.edu/courses/pbl/
for anyone who would like to review them. Comments are most welcome!
Our next program will be held on September 16 (see below). We still have
spots available, so send me an e-mail if you would like to participate. It
is the last one we will be holding for a while, as our non-traditional
Doctor of Pharmacy program just got started. We had 46 people sign up for
the program. We will be dividing the group into those who will meet for PBL
groups face-to-face, and those who will me via Internet Chat. Should make
for some interesting comparisons in a year or so.

Target Audience: Licensed pharmacists. Students and non-U.S. pharmacists may

Synopsis of Program: Six pharmacists will meet in an on-line Internet chat
room. There they will be presented with several patient cases.. During the
next two hours, the pharmacists will identify learning issues related to the
case. These learning issues are all questions about the case that the
pharmacist cannot immediately answer. Potential learning issues include
definitions, interpretations of laboratory values, and identification of
possible drug interactions. Following the on-line discussion, the
pharmacists will spend the next week researching the learning issues at
home. We estimate that it will take at least three hours to fully research
then entire list of learning issues. After the end of the week, the
pharmacists will take a multiple-choice examination related to the case.
Upon achieving a grade of 70% or better, the pharmacist will be awarded
continuing education credit.

Laboratories and the American Association of Colleges of Pharmacy. This
program is part of the AACP 1996 Innovations in Continuing Education Grant
