UConn has developed web-based continuing pharmacy education activities to enhance the practice of pharmacists and assist pharmacists in making sound clinical decisions to affect the outcome of anticoagulation therapy for the patients they serve. There are a total of 12 hours of CPE credit available.
Successful completion of these 12 hours (13 activities) or equivalent training will partially prepare the pharmacist for the Anticoagulation Traineeship, which is noted below.
If desired, “bundle” pricing can be obtained by registering for the activities in groups. It consists of thirteen anticoagulation activities in our online selection.
The activities below are available separately for $15/hr or as a bundle price of $120 for all 13 activities (12 hours). These are the pre-requisites for the anticoagulation traineeship. Any pharmacist who wishes to increase their knowledge of anticoagulation may take any of the programs below.
