Hospital Pharmacies Gain An Edge On Better Patient Care With Competency Training

Denver, CO /PRNewswire/ - TRC® Healthcare (Therapeutic Research Center or TRC®) announces the release of RxAdvanced, a new online competency training solution designed to help hospital pharmacists stay current with changing practice and achieve high levels of competency in critical clinical areas. The self-guided content is delivered through a web-based learning management portal, available 24/7 to hospital pharmacists.

TRC Healthcare developed the best-in-class training to address unmet needs shared by American hospital pharmacies, according to Wes Crews, Chief Executive Officer of TRC Healthcare. "The goal of RxAdvanced is to offer a better alternative to in-house training and expensive purchased options that often miss the mark in terms of their relevancy, cost-effectiveness and convenience," Crews says. "Licensed pharmacists are an influential part of multidisciplinary healthcare teams in hospitals. They can be very effective agents for helping the nation's hospitals improve outcomes for patients, especially when their knowledge is deepened by the latest research. We've positioned RxAdvanced to help pharmacists perform at the peak of their abilities."

RxAdvanced updates hospital pharmacists in critical subjects that help hospitals maintain a high standard of patient care. Coverage includes programs in antimicrobial stewardship, anticoagulation management, hazardous drugs, sterile compounding and opioid stewardship. In 2020, TRC enhanced its position as trusted leader of training and professional development for the healthcare industry by acquiring CriticalPoint, a premier source of authoritative education in subjects such as the sterile compounding content included in RxAdvanced.

Completion of coursework and applicable skill assessments extends continuing education (CE) credits to licensed pharmacists.

RxAdvanced is the latest in a series of TRC Healthcare products embraced by the U.S. pharmacy industry as robust, unbiased sources of continuing education, including Pharmacist's Letter and Prescriber's Letter. Visit the TRC Healthcare website for more information.
