Kari Franson & Ralph Altiere – Advancing pharmacy practice for students and practitioners through the framework of Entrustable Professional Activities (EPAs

Room 1

EPAs support pharmacists (in training and in practice) to assume greater responsibility and accountability for improving health outcomes of patients through medicines expertise.  They are a means to translate competencies (personal descriptors) into clinical practice (work descriptors) and are executable in a specific time frame, observable and measurable to determine one’s ability to perform a defined clinical task.  In so doing, they provide the learner and assessor with valuable feedback on progress towards ever higher levels of practice.
