Date:12/12/2012

CORVALLIS, Ore., Dec. 12, 2012 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- EPIC Pharmacies, Inc. and Professional and Noncredit Education at Oregon State University reached an agreement last week to allow EPIC's member pharmacies to purchase OSU's Management & HR Skills for Pharmacists online course at a discounted rate.

OSU's College of Pharmacy and College of Business developed the course specifically for pharmacists to provide a valuable continuing education opportunity. Participants can earn 1.8 Accreditation Council for Pharmacy Education continuing education units after completing the 18-hour course.

"Today's pharmacists work in fast-paced and outcomes-oriented health care environments," says Paige Clark, director of alumni relations and professional development for the OSU College of Pharmacy.  "They need business and leadership skills to navigate the challenges of their increasingly complex workplace. Pharmacies that employ graduates of this course will profit from improved critical management skills, optimized teamwork, and decreased risk and cost of turnover."

Pharmacists and pharmacy managers who take the course will learn how to:

  • Employ leadership, staffing and decision-making skills to generate a high-performance working environment.
  • Apply skills learned to enhance the development and productivity of pharmacy team members through coaching, motivation and feedback.
  • Manage the pharmacy and pharmacy team in accordance with the highest standards and in compliance with employment law.

"EPIC is pleased to offer this valuable online CE program to our members to enhance their management skills," says Tom Scono, vice president of contracts for EPIC Pharmacies, Inc. "We believe the practical tools learned in this program will be invaluable to owners and staff alike."

The interactive learning environment features multimedia storytelling to help prepare participants for future managerial and human resources tasks. Course content is updated regularly to reflect the most recent research and regulations, and registered participants can access the online course 24/7.

The program has been planned and implemented in accordance with the policies of the Accreditation Council on Pharmaceutical Education through the sponsorship of the OSU College of Pharmacy.  The OSU College of Pharmacy is approved by the Accreditation Council on Pharmaceutical Education as a provider of continuing pharmaceutical education.
