BOSTON, June 28, 2016 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- ProCE, Inc. and the Society for Infectious Disease Pharmacists (SIDP) today announced an educational partnership for accredited continuing pharmacy education (CPE). Called the SIDP Education Center (SIDPEC™), the portal will provide educational activities on infectious disease pharmacotherapy for clinical pharmacists, health-systems pharmacists, and other allied-health disciplines. SIDPEC will host home study content, live webinars, and a registration portal for local and national symposia.
The development of SIDPEC is the latest in a series of joint educational projects co-developed/accredited by ProCE and SIDP, which co-produced a successful antimicrobial stewardship certificate program. "I see SIDPEC as a top-shelf CE portal on the pharmacotherapy for infectious disease, with content targeted at both the specialized infectious-disease pharmacist as well as the generalist looking to expand his or her knowledge of infectious disease clinical pharmacy," says Richard Lewis, PharmD, MBA, President of ProCE, Inc. "SIDP is truly a member driven organization with a strong mission that ultimately impacts patient care. We look forward to this next step in our partnership."
"Infectious disease (ID) is continually evolving, with new bugs and new drugs emerging all the time," says SIDP President Jason Gallagher, PharmD. "And keeping up with new developments in ID is not only important for the ID specialist, but for practically every healthcare professional working with patients. SIDPEC will offer exceptional content in a central location so we can all stay on top of our game when it comes to ID therapeutics. We have worked with ProCE for several years, and they are the perfect partner for this endeavor."
SIDPEC is expected to launch this summer. For more information, visit www.proce.com.
