HSCCP: 2023-24 Sharpening the Saw: Precepting Continuous Professional Development Newsletter

The purpose of this activity is to deliver a short written CE article surrounding the CPD cycle for HSCCP Preceptors, within the biannual preceptor’s newsletter. This activity will provide a framework to help preceptors consider continuous quality improvement within their precepting skills. Preceptors may not consciously think about their continuous quality improvement (CQI) process for how to improve precepting skills and rotation offerings. This education is intended to address this gap by providing an evidence based framework to support CQI.

The College of Pharmacy at the University of North Texas Health Science Center at Fort Worth presents this learning activity for pharmacy preceptors. 

Target Audience

This activity is intended for pharmacists.

  • Identify the modes and examples for the assessment of preceptors.
