LIVE LECTURES OR WEBINAR
This annual clinical pharmacology series has been redesigned as a lecture series to better suit the needs of busy healthcare professionals. You can come to the UW Tower in Seattle to attend the lectures live, speak with presenters and network with your colleagues—just as you have always done at the conference. But the lecture series format gives you much more flexibility. If you are called away or your schedule changes, you can watch the lecture videos later and still earn your contact hours. OR, you can attend remotely by signing up for the webinar version of this series at checkout.
- Live Lectures: Attend lectures in person at UW Tower (food and drinks for purchase nearby).
- Webinar: Participate remotely from work or home.
If you miss a live lecture, you can watch it later and still get credit.
This series of four one-day courses are designed as a pharmacology update for nurse practitioners and other clinicians at the advanced practice level. Sessions focus on current recommendations and controversies regarding drug therapy for common problems and include appropriate pharmacotherapeutic principles and recommendations for patient education. Teaching methods include lecture, discussion and case analysis.
Nurse practitioners, clinical nurse specialists, nurses, pharmacists and other healthcare professionals in all settings.
