Pediatric pharmacotherapy, a growing practice area, will become a board certified specialty in the USA 2015. Yet, with little clinical data on the efficacy of drugs used for children and their other special needs, these small patients can be your biggest challenge. Now there is a very effective way to assess and advance your pediatric pharmacotherapy skills, on your own time, at your own pace: ASHP's new Pediatric Pharmacotherapy Self Assessment. Sandra Benavides and Milap C. Nahata, co-lead editors of a major pediatric pharmacotherapy textbook, and Hanna Phan, Assistant Professor in Pharmacy and Pediatrics at the University of Arizona College of Medicine, have created this unique resource. A practical learning tool for all levels of proficiency, it allows students, residents, and practicing pharmacists alike to strengthen their knowledge and analytical skills through 32 cases involving varying degrees of diagnostic complexity. Based on real life situations, these cases present challenges in the use of supplements, OTC, drug formulations, and all other therapies for neonates, children, and adolescents. This Self Assessment is a professional development tool for all areas of concern and levels of practice that can benefit you and your youngest patients for years to come.
