Understanding Research Statistics: They're Not Too Mean

Saturday, February 4, 2:45-3:45 PM

Accredited for Pharmacists


Pharmacists must be able to determine the clinical value of a study and whether or not changes to patient care should occur as a result of the study's findings. These skills are necessary to practice evidence-based care and for having meaningful and intelligent peer conversations with providers who prescribe medications based off the results of studies. Pharmacists should be experts on medications and the data supporting their use. As an extension of the previous course on medical literature, this session will engage learners in the audience to determine the clinical value of various studies.
