Building a Theoretically Grounded Curricular Framework for Successful Interprofessional Education.

Am J Pharm Educ 2018 Dec;82(10):7075

University of Washington School of Nursing, Seattle, Washington.

Experts in the field of interprofessional education (IPE) have called for the use of theory in curriculum design to produce better results with measurable outcomes. While evidence of this practice is growing in the IPE literature, publications about using theoretical approaches to inform curricular design in pharmacy education is nonexistent. This paper describes the process used at the University of Washington for developing a theoretically grounded framework to anchor and guide curriculum design. Read More

Best Practices on Examination Construction, Administration, and Feedback.

Am J Pharm Educ 2018 Dec;82(10):7066

Northeastern University School of Pharmacy, Bouvé College of Health Sciences, Boston, Massachusetts.

Examinations are typically used in higher education to objectively assess student learning, and they are also used as a frequent assessment tool in the Doctor of Pharmacy curriculum. This paper describes best practices and provides examples for faculty to build reliable and valid examinations, ensure examination security and deter academic misconduct, and enhance student learning and achievement of course objectives. Colleges and schools of pharmacy can incorporate these concepts into comprehensive examination policies and focus faculty development efforts on improving the examination purpose, design, and experience for both faculty and students.

A Modified Approach to Setting Curriculum Boundaries in Pharmacy School.

Am J Pharm Educ 2018 Nov;82(9):7010

University of Maryland School of Pharmacy, Baltimore, Maryland.

Doctor of Pharmacy department heads are responsible for determining the breadth and depth of content within courses. While the Accreditation Council for Pharmacy Education (ACPE) provides standards for what content, skills, and abilities should be included in PharmD education, the process that schools and colleges use to determine the degree to which these measured outcomes are taught is variable. As new topics and content for instruction are identified, schools and colleges are faced with either extending the PharmD curriculum length, removing other content, or diminishing the depth that other content is covered to make room for new content.
