2018 Hospital Practice Seminar • CME •



Conference

The University of Texas College of Pharmacy welcomes you to the Hospital Practice Seminar.  This CE seminar will focus on the educational needs of hospital pharmacists, physicians, and pharmacy technicians. The Seminar will take place on June 15-16, 2018 at the DoubleTree by Hilton in Austin, Texas.  The Hospital Practice Seminar’s (HPS) mission is to provide important updates relevant to today’s hospital-based pharmacists, physicians, physican assistants and pharmacy technicians.  The HPS promotes a culture of cross-institutional collaboration, creativity and innovation. 
 
Registration includes access to all CE activities, education content and copies of presentations, beverages and meals (breakfast and lunch for each day, including snacks). 

The content of this conference is based on practice gaps that are identified by surveying pharmacists, physicians and technicians who work in hospital settings, through discussions with the planning committee, and by analyzing current practice trends.  Participants will receive evidence-based clinical information that is relevant to hospital-based practices (see Agenda).  Speakers who have been recommended by the planning committee as outstanding presenters and experts in their practice will deliver the featured presentations.

Each session in the conference is formatted to include: a didactic evidence-based presentation, opportunities for active learning through the use of case studies, and Q&A discussion that allows audience members to ask specific questions for individualized learning.  The agenda also features a couple of panel discussions, which allow practitioners with various practice backgrounds an opportunity to share their individual experiences and varying viewpoints, in a more casual atmosphere.  The panel discussions typically allow more time for participants to ask questions and to interact with a wide variety of speakers.  The information delivered at this conference is intended to be in-depth, yet practical enough that participants will immediately put it to use upon return to their practice.  The content may be used to implement individualized, comprehensive and evidence-based treatment plans for patients.


Who Should Register

Pharmacists, Physicians, Physician Assistants and Pharmacy Technicians who practice in hospital and clinical health care settings, who wish to learn relevant and practical information to improve patient outcomes.
