Emerging Biosimilar Medications: Key Issues and Considerations for Pharmacists
Presented by Deanna Moretz, PharmD
Biosimilar products are FDA-approved biologic medications that are highly similar to and have no clinically meaningful differences from existing FDA-approved reference products. The emergence of biosimilars represents a paradigm shift in product development, regulatory review, and FDA approval. Current FDA-approved biosimilar products will be presented along with resources to guide the pharmacist in assessing interchangeability of biosimilar medications for the reference product. Finally, tips for providing patient education when dispensing biosimilar products will be discussed.

3:00 – 3:50 pm
Preceptor Development – Receiving Feedback
Presented by Katie Foster, PharmD, BCPS
We’ve all received feedback throughout our careers, both good and bad. This interactive session will focus on developing tools to identify feedback triggers, formulate strategies for sorting through feedback and turn it into meaningful action items. This session will focus on feedback being received from both the learner and preceptor perspectives to be applicable for a variety of audiences.

3:50 – 4:10 pm

4:10 – 5:00 pm
Don't WRITE-off the importance of writing in pharmacy: How to help your learners improve their skills
Presented by Abby Frye, PharmD, BCACP
The ability to communicate effectively in a written form is a crucial skill for all pharmacists. Preceptors are in a prime position to help learners become more proficient and confident writers. The goals of this interactive presentation are to improve preceptors ability to identify learners struggling with written communication, to help preceptors provide effective feedback to writers, and to provide preceptors with the necessary resources to help learners improve their writing skills.

Evolving Landscape of Treating Gram-Negative Bacteremia
Presented by Brent Footer and Alyssa Christensen
There are no IDSA guidelines regarding the management of gram-negative bacteremia. Over the past 5 years significant practice changes within this disease state have occurred. This course will examine the evidence behind some of the key concepts to contemporary management of gram-negative bacteremia and in which populations these newer concepts can be applied to. This includes duration, appropriate step-down therapy, when to re-culture, and treatment of multi drug resistant organisms. Although there are no official guidelines on the topic, this talk will draw from the IDSA guidance on the treatment of antimicrobial resistant pathogens as well as the Consensus Guidance issued from the Antibiotic Stewardship Implementation Collaborative.

1:40 – 2:30 pm (Track B – Geriatrics)
Osteoporosis Treatment Updates
Presented by Lindsey Reakes
Osteoporosis is the most common bone disease in humans, impacting millions in the aging population. It is characterized by compromised bone strength and disruption of bone architecture that leads to increased risk of fracture, most notable of hip and spine. Post-menopausal females are at heightened risk as bone mineral loss rapidly increases during menopause, with an average loss of bone mineral density of 10-12% during menopause.  Pharmacists can help identify patients at risk for osteoporosis, recommend screening and appropriate therapeutic options to decrease facture risk in patients with low bone mass or osteoporosis.

2:35 – 3:25 pm (Track A – General)
Heart Failure Update 2022
Presented by John Mackay

2:35 – 3:25 pm (Track B – Geriatrics)
Pharmacist Role in Palliative Care
Presented by Danielle Backus
During this session, we will begin by comparing/contrasting palliative care with "disease-directed" care and hospice care. We will review ASHP’s guidelines for pharmacists’ role in palliative care, then discuss opportunities for palliative care at attendees’ practice sites.  Finally, we will discuss how palliative care concepts can be incorporated with specific medications and chronic disease management. 

3:30 – 4:20 pm (Track A – General)
