The University of Connecticut and Drug Topics have joined forces to bring you relevant, outstanding Continuing Education Activities.  We have combined our efforts to further the current pharmacy workforce to make improved patient outcomes a reality.  Training pharmacists to deliver Medication Management at this level of expertise is paramount to providing positive patient outcomes.  Pharmacists must have the necessary knowledge and skills applicable to address complex patient cases with multiple medications, physician specialists and co-morbidities.  In addition, they must possess the oral and written skills to effectively navigate the motivation of patients and convey the issues to the providers.

These continuing education activities are free of charge.  For more information regarding each set of topics, just click on the links below. 

We have recently transitioned from the Drug Topics to the UConn learning management system.  We hope you find that this change will make accessing the articles and receiving your credits easier to navigate.  If you have questions regarding your credits, please feel free to contact Joanne Nault at or 860-486-2084
