The College of Psychiatric and Neurologic Pharmacists Annual Meeting is the premier meeting devoted to advancing the practice of neuropsychiatric pharmacy in the context of a rapidly changing health care environment. The meeting provides opportunities for immediate application and idea exchange through cutting-edge educational programming and networking opportunities such as community meetings, forums, poster sessions, and member-driven learning labs.
Programming is dedicated to providing current information on neuropsychiatric health care issues and disease states with the goal to advance the specific knowledge, leadership skills, and competence required for neuropsychiatric pharmacy practice. All health professionals engaged in the care of patients with neuropsychiatric disorders will find this meeting to be an educational and enlightening experience that positively impacts daily practice.
The College of Psychiatric and Neurologic Pharmacists is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Pharmacy Education as a provider of continuing pharmacy education. The 2017 Annual Meeting will provide up to 15.5 contact hours of knowledge- and application-based continuing education credit from CPNP approved programming.
The pre-meeting workshop is provided for an additional 3 contact hours and when combined with all other CPNP programming, allows for a maximum achievable 18.5 contact hours. Industry supported symposia offered at the Annual Meeting offer additional ACPE credit.
The CPNP Annual Meeting has been designed to bridge the perceived practice and knowledge gap between current knowledge and practice in a number of areas of psychiatric and neurologic pharmacy practice. Published evidence-based guidelines help establish standards in regard to medications, dosing, and treatment, however, there are often disparities seen in clinical practice when compared to these guidelines.
Additionally, many guidelines fail to keep up with emerging treatments and controversial issues or simply do not address practical day-to-day treatment dilemmas. This meeting will attempt to bridge this gap in treatment and knowledge with selected psychiatric and neurologic issues.
