Conclusion: The validated questionnaire presents acceptable content validity psychometric measures and may reveal the hospital pharmacists' gaps in knowledge, skills and attitudes in the use of information technology and electronic tools. These tools are organized according to the medi-, cation use process and focus on knowledge and skills that, PharmD students should develop to prepare them to use, informatics in their future practice. Health-care has rapidly evolved with the informatics revolution. In relation to clarity, the editing of the items was evaluated, such that the concept expected to be measured was fully understandable and adequately expressed (clarity scale: 1-not clear, 2-somewhat clear, 3-clear and 4-very clear). When I first meet with preclinical medical students, I make a point of asking them what they believe will receive the greatest focus of their attention once they are in clinical practice. Educators are encouraged to survey the literature, frequently to ensure the use of current information in their, 2. This manuscript describes pharmacy informatics knowledge and skills that all graduating pharmacy students should possess, conceptualized within the framework of the medication use process. iii.

Extravasation is the leakage of intravenously administered solution into surrounding tissues, which can cause serious damage to the patient. Basic Physical Pharmacy provides a thorough yet accessible overview of the principles of physical pharmacy and their application in drug formulation and administration. The advent of EHRs -longitudinal collection of patient health information (PHI) accessed electronically by authorized individuals to support the delivery of healthcare -has enabled pharmacists to enhance the quality of delivery and safety of healthcare through improved accessibility to PHI and enabling better understanding of the health statuses of their patients [4,[8][9], The education of pharmacists in the United States integrates classroom and experiential learning.

The syllabi contained a diverse mix of educational content, some of which represented pharmacy informatics content as defined by ACPE. Health systems are implementing electronic work, eters, such as the Joint Commission Core Meas, Automation has been a hallmark of pharmacy prac-, tice for many years. Subsequently, faculty feedback about the competency list was obtained via two synchronous online focus groups in August 2015. This course will provide learning for nurses at all levels of experience in basic pharmacology to help them develop knowledge of medication categories and improve medication administration skills.
