Development of a Micro-Credential on the Newly Developed Pharmacist Patient Care Process for Use in Pharmacy and Health Profession Programs: Promoting Patient-Centered Care

The Pharmacists’ Patient Care Process (PPCP), developed by the Joint Commission of Pharmacy Practitioners, outlines a standardized, evidence-based process (collect, assess, plan, implement, follow-up, collaborate, document, and communicate) emphasizing a patient-centered approach to care in collaboration with other health care team providers. Recent Pharmacy and Pharmacy Technician accreditation standards place an emphasis on the PPCP model and its use throughout courses and experiences, which challenges. The proposed innovation for this project is to develop collaborative content consisting of stackable modules on the elements of the PPCP for use across pharmacy and health education professional and post-graduate programs. Completion of the modules will result in an earned Micro-Credential (for academic credit) or a Digital Badge (for non-degree students). The videos will be available through Open SUNY making them highly transferable.
