Learning Objectives OPA Home Study Educational Programming: Patient Safety, Law & Immunization

Goals and Objectives for OPF Home Study Continuing Education

Patient Safety

A New Generation of Medical Errors with the Rise of Health Information Technology
ACPE #0129-0000-16-007-H05-P
Goal. The goal of this lesson is to review the impact of e-prescribing and health information technology (IT) on medication errors in the community pharmacy setting.  The use of clinical decision support systems (CDSS) and the impact of alert fatigue on overriding potentially clinically significant medication-related alerts will be reviewed.  The role of pharmacists in identifying and minimizing medication errors will also be discussed.
Objectives. At the completion of this activity, the participant will be able to:

  1. demonstrate an understanding of the rationale for the continued development and implementation of electronic prescribing in community pharmacies and across other health systems;
  2. list advantages of utilization of electronic prescribing in community pharmacies;
  3. identify drawbacks, common sources of errors, and workflow issues related to electronic prescribing; and
  4. recognize solutions for identifying and resolving medication-related errors associated with electronic prescribing and for reducing alert fatigue.

Other Home Study

Immunizations for Typhoid, Yellow Fever, Japanese Encephalitis, Cholera and Rabies
ACPE #0129-0000-16-120-H01-P
Goals.  The goals for this lesson are to provide a working knowledge of typhoid, yellow fever, Japanese encephalitis, cholera and rabies vaccines.
Objectives
At the completion of this activity, the participant will be able to:
1. identify persons who should be vaccinated with typhoid, yellow fever, Japanese encephalitis, cholera and rabies vaccines;
2. recognize the epidemiology and signs and symptoms of each disease; and
3. list dosage, route of administration, adverse reactions, contraindications and storage requirements for each vaccine.

Immunizations for HPV, Varicella, Hib, and Polio
ACPE #0129-0000-15-062-H01-P
Goals.  The goals for this lesson are to provide background information on human papillomavirus (HPV), varicella, Haemophilus influenzae type b (Hib), and polio; and a working knowledge of HPV, varicella, Hib, and polio vaccines.
Objectives.  At the completion of this activity, the participant will be able to:
1. identify the diseases caused by human papillomavirus (HPV), varicella, Haemophilus influenzae type b (Hib), and polio; and state the epidemiology of these vaccine-preventable diseases;
2. list the recommendations for immunization of patients seven years of age or older for these vaccines, including appropriate patient populations, doses, route of administration, and injection sites;
3. recognize the precautions, contraindications, and adverse reactions associated with these vaccines, as well as monitoring and treatment of patients with adverse reactions; and
4. list the storage and handling requirements of HPV, varicella, Hib, and polio vaccines.

Immunizations for Measles, Mumps and Rubella
ACPE# 0129-0000-14-052-H01-P
Goal. 
The goal of this lesson is to provide information on advances in immunizations for measles, mumps and rubella (MMR), and a working knowledge of MMR vaccine.
Objectives.
At the completion of this activity, the participant will be able to:
1. discuss the viruses that cause measles, mumps and rubella, and the epidemiology of these vaccine-preventable diseases;
2. identify individuals who are at risk for measles, mumps and rubella diseases, and are candidates for measles, mumps and rubella (MMR) vaccine; and recognize individuals for whom the vaccine is not appropriate;
3. list adverse reactions reported with MMR vaccine;
4. state the storage and handling requirements of MMR vaccine; and
5. describe the dose, route of administration, and recommendations for adult immunization for MMR vaccine.

Immunizations for Selected Vaccine-Preventable Diseases
ACPE# 0129-0000-14-052-H01-P
Goal.  The goal of this lesson is to provide background information on adult immunizations and vaccine- preventable diseases, and a working knowledge of influenza, pneumococcal, hepatitis A & B, meningococcal, tetanus, diphtheria, pertussis and zoster vaccines.
Objectives.  At the completion of this activity, the participant should be able to:
1.  exhibit knowledge of the immune system, types of antigens, and types of immunity,
2. identify effective immunization strategies for prevention of influenza, pneumonia, hepatitis A & B, meningitis, tetanus, diphtheria, pertussis and herpes zoster in at-risk populations, and the roles of health care providers;
3. demonstrate an understanding of the currently available adult vaccines for the diseases discussed, including indications, dosing recommendations, contraindications and precautions, adverse reactions, and storage requirements;
4. outline appropriate monitoring and treatment of the vaccinee for adverse reactions including the use of epinephrine and diphenhydramine;
5. recognize how to report vaccine adverse events; and
6. list key sources for current information on vaccines.

Home Study Law CE

Legislative and Regulatory Interventions to Combat Opioid Abuse
ACPE #0129-0000-16-013-H03-P
Goals: The goals of this lesson are to provide an overview of legislative efforts to permit dispensing of naloxone without a prescription, and rule changes to increase the use of OARRS to help combat opioid abuse in Ohio.
Objectives. At the completion of this activity, the participant will be able to:
1. demonstrate an understanding of the basic pharmacology of naloxone, available products, and rationale for use in opioid overdoses;
2. list the provisions of recent legislation in Ohio which permits a pharmacist to dispense naloxone without a prescription;
3. outline recent changes in criteria for increased OARRS monitoring; and
4. explain how legislative and regulatory efforts have affected opioid overdose deaths in Ohio.

Electronic Prescribing of Controlled Substances in Ohio
ACPE 0129-0000-15-081-H03-P
Goal. The goal of this lesson is to review state and federal requirements for e-prescribing, particularly of controlled substances.
Objectives. At the completion of this activity, the participant will be able to:
1. list common methods, accepted by Ohio rules, for positive identification of  electronically stored pharmacy records;
2. recognize basic legal requirements for e-prescribing systems in Ohio;
3. identify DEA requirements for the approval of an Electronic Health Record (EHR) system for the e-prescribing of controlled substances
4. demonstrate an understanding of the basic flow of an electronic controlled substance prescription from the prescriber to the pharmacy; and
