Online Education | Pediatric Drug Therapy 2015

This online course is designed as a pharmacology update for nurse practitioners, clinical nurse specialists, nurses and healthcare professionals in all settings. Each module focuses on current recommendations and pharmacotherapeutic principles for common pediatric and adolescent health concerns.

"All of the speakers at the Pediatric Drug Therapy 2015 Conference did a great job of teaching evidence-based practice for many areas that I see on a continual basis working as a pediatric nurse practitioner in a rural setting."

"All speakers were very knowledgeable and articulate."

Lectures were recorded in March 2015 at a conference in Seattle, Washington provided by Continuing Nursing Education at the University of Washington School of Nursing. Teaching methods include video, audio and downloadable handouts.

Publish Date: April 27, 2015. This course will be available for three years from this date.
