AllianceRx Walgreens Prime sponsors online CE for NASP member pharmacists

By Sandra Levy - 03/05/2019
AllianceRx Walgreens Prime is sponsoring accredited, web-based continuing education customized specifically for members of the National Association of Specialty Pharmacy, which includes AllianceRx Walgreens Prime pharmacists.

The CE content is accredited, managed and delivered through ProCE, a nationally recognized provider of CE for healthcare professionals.

As part of its ongoing professional development and clinical training programs for pharmacists, AllianceRx Walgreens Prime offers a range of on-demand CE courses across several prevalent disease states managed within specialty pharmacy. These include oncology, fertility, hepatitis C, multiple sclerosis, cystic fibrosis, and chronic inflammatory/autoimmune diseases.

New courses include modules on prostate cancer, nutrition, and cancer. The courses are provided by NASP, the only nonprofit national trade association representing specialty pharmacy, and serving as both the leading educational resource and national advocate for specialty pharmacy healthcare professionals and patients.

"We are proud to collaborate with NASP. Not only does this provide our pharmacists a path for advancing their career and obtaining their CSP, but it means better patient service for treating complex conditions," vice president of clinical services, professional practice and accreditation at AllianceRx Walgreens Prime Rick Miller said. "We work closely with NASP and ProCE to construct the course curriculum and have taken it a step further to offer this CE at no cost to our employees."

"This agreement demonstrates AllianceRx Walgreens Prime's commitment to specialty pharmacy and the education of its pharmacists around clinical and service delivery components that differentiate specialty pharmacy," NASP executive director Sheila Arquette said. "It also shows the tremendous investment they have made not only in their employees, but also to the patients they serve."

"Both AllianceRx Walgreens Prime and NASP continue to devote significant resources to the continuing professional development of specialty pharmacists," ProCE president and CEO Richard Lewis said. "As a CE provider, we are thrilled to see the dedication to patient care through professional education."
