Cancer survivors represent both those patients that are living with cancer and those who have had cancer. Everyday the cancer survivor population grows and this population requires special attention to address their complex pharmacotherapy needs. Community pharmacists represent the single most qualified healthcare professionals capable of addressing these needs at the scale necessitated by the enormity of the cancer survivor population. With this in mind CanceRxCE™ was founded to ensure that the appropriate training would be available for community pharmacists to meet the needs of the cancer survivors.
The CanceRxCE™ Team sought and secured support from the
New York State Department of Health (NYSDoH) to create and pilot
the program in the most affected area of the state, New York City.
Now, for a limited time, the CanceRxCE™ Program is available
to eligible pharmacists in New York City for FREE! The program is
all online and lasts for 5 weeks including both online homestudy
and live sessions, all componenets are individually accredited to
provide upto 40 total hours of Pharmacy Continuing Education
credit. Completion of the entire 40 hours of material will also
result in the awarding on the Online Oncology Certificate for
Community Pharmacists, accredited as a Practice-based CPE activity
(previously named Certificate Program in Pharmacy).
The CanceRxCE™ Team is excited to now be able to offer two paid options for pharmacists not eligible for the free program. Please join the CanceRxCE LinkedIn group to receive updates about the program.
