Preface:”Pediatric Self-Assessment Program (PedSAP), a new recertification component for the Board Certified Pediatric Pharmacy Specialist (BCPPS). ACCP has a long tradition of offering the best products for continuing pharmacy education and pharmacotherapy specialist certification.
PedSAP continues that tradition by providing the latest in evidence-based information for the practitioner or clinician working with this special population. In designing this series, the primary goal was to provide updates that would improve clinical pharmacy practice and patient outcomes.
The process began with a careful review of the content outline developed by the Board of Pharmacy Specialties for the Pediatric Pharmacy Specialty Certification Examination.
The 2017–2018 PedSAP chapters will therefore cover the domains of patient management; practice management; information man- agement and education; and public health and patient advocacy.
Specific content for individual releases in this series was orga- nized on the basis of the systems and patient care problems that might be expected of the BCPPS.
Finally, calls went out to recruit faculty panel chairs, authors, and reviewers committed to this new specialty and to the board certification process.”
