New Specialty Pharmacy Certification Board to Certify Specialty Pharmacists
Date:7/24/2012

WASHINGTON, July 24, 2012 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- The National Association of Specialty Pharmacy™ (NASP™) and the Specialty Pharmacy Certification Board ™,  cspboard.org, (Board) each formed their own organizations as a result of the decision to create a totally independent Certification Board.

The Specialty Pharmacy Certification Board™ is developing unique and differentiated Certifications for Pharmacists, Nurses, and Pharmacy technicians.  The new certification Board is developing certifications that are relevant and meaningful to all Specialty Pharmacy therapeutic practices, and will promote new industry standards, with clarity.

There are currently less than 15,000 pharmacists certified by two other pharmacy certification boards. There are over 275,000 licensed pharmacists practicing in the United States.

There is an unmet need and wide educational gap that has developed in the practice of pharmacy.  Specialty pharmacy is the fastest growing segment of the industry, and the pipeline of specialty pharmaceutical products is continuing to fuel the growth. Specialty pharmaceutical products treat life threatening, life-long diseases such as Hemophilia, Hepatitis C, Cancer, Immune deficiencies, Multiple Sclerosis, Rheumatoid Arthritis, Cystic Fibrosis, and other difficult to manage serious diseases.

To meet this need, the Certification Board will develop therapeutic category sub-specialty assessments called "endorsements", which will require additional assessment testing once a pharmacist has been credentialed.

Pharmacists have taken on an increasingly important role in managing medication therapy, formularies,
