BCNSP Recertification Program -- Coming Soon!

BPS has approved Purdue’s professional development program to provide recertification offerings to Board Certified Nutrition Support Pharmacists (BCNSPs) that will begin January 1, 2017.  We plan to launch our program with at least 30 hours of recertification credit at that time.  Additional programming will be added each year to ensure a sufficient number of hours is available for BCNSPs to have the option to recertify via our recertification program.  We will be sending messages throughout the year to keep you apprised of our progress and look forward to serving as your recertification provider.  If you have any questions and/or would like to contact us, please email us at reynoldk@purdue.edu.

We hope this is the first of many visits to peruse our continuing education options which are being developed to offer you credible, relevant information that you can use to advance your knowledge base and, at the same time, inspire your patients to ask questions and be partners in their own "health" care.

In this activity, an expert in major depressive disorder discusses current guidelines and strategies for the diagnosis and ongoing assessment of patients suffering with this condition. The clinical utility of a variety of therapies is reviewed, along with practical approaches to achieving remission in these patients.        
The Purdue University College of Pharmacy designates this enduring material for a maximum of 0.5 AMA PRA Category 1 Credit™. Physicians should claim only the credit commensurate with the extent of their participation in the activity.
Successful completion of this CME activity, which includes participation in the evaluation component, enables the participant to earn up to 0.5 MOC points and patient safety MOC credit in the American Board of Internal Medicine’s (ABIM) Maintenance of Certification (MOC) program. It is the CME activity provider’s responsibility to submit participant completion information to ACCME for the purpose of granting ABIM MOC credit.
This CME activity is jointly provided by Purdue University College of Pharmacy and PVI, PeerView Institute for Medical Education, who is hosting this session.
