Description

Successful pharmacy careers begin with successful rotations - and successful rotations start with this guide. Although rotations are crucial to the development of skills needed to practice pharmacy, there has been little available to guide students in the best way to prepare and make the most of these experiences - until now. Maximize Your Rotations: ASHP's Student Guide to IPPEs, APPEs, and Beyond breaks down everything you need to know into easy-to-navigate chapters. Inside you will find the skills required to excel while on IPPE or APPE rotations, along with competencies that may be unique to one type of rotation or another. Each chapter is written by an experienced preceptor, lending a valuable perspective. By using this text, you will gain an appreciation of the general expectations and typical activities of each rotation experience before you begin. Better preparation means better performance. Maximize Your Rotations will also be a resource throughout the experiential year, offering everything from reminders of clinical issues and statistical reviews to advice on interviewing, CV writing, professional organizations, and more. Maximize Your Rotations means less time getting up to speed - and more time getting ahead in your career. Your rotation experience can be the launching pad for your career, and there's no better guide than Maximize Your Rotations.show more

Maximize Your Rotations: ASHP s Guide to IPPEs, APPEs, and Beyond By Mate Soric American Journal of Pharmaceutical Education 2013; 77 (10) Article 231. [REVIEWER'S EXPERT OPINION]Janet K. Astle, EdD. Mylan School of Pharmacy, Duquesne University, Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania It can be a real challenge to maintain any type of consistency when dealing with multiple contributors to a text. Nevertheless, in Maximize Your Rotations: ASHP s Guide to IPPEs, APPEs, and Beyond, Soric manages to create a coherent work Written for students preparing for introductory and advanced pharmacy practice experiences (IPPEs and APPEs), the text goes into much greater depth than publications of a similar nature. Its voice, format, and structure make for an easy read that is both engaging and informative. The book is divided into 3 main sections. Part I: The Essentials, consisting of chapters 1 through 6, deals with overarching concepts that cut across multiple practice experience types. Topics include a review of medical terminology and biostatistics, a systematic method for conducting a balanced and objective evaluation of the literature, an approach to handling drug information questions and case presentations, and an overview of professionalism. Part II: The Particulars discusses student preparation for and engagement in individual practice experience types. Chapters 7 through 14 in this section address IPPEs as well as APPEs in internal medicine and other clinical settings, hospital or health-system pharmacy, community pharmacy, ambulatory care, management and leadership, geriatrics, and academia. The book concludes with Part III: Life After Rotations. The final 3 chapters address postgraduate opportunities, lifelonglearning, and the importance of serving as a preceptor in the future.Each chapter begins with a short case to set the stage for the primary topic. Quick Tips and Case Questions interspersed throughout the narrative keep the reader focused and provide an opportunity for reflection. Also embedded in each chapter are helpful tables, definitions, common laboratory values, equations, sample forms and formats, and other valuable references. A list of suggested readings and citations is provided at the end of each chapter, although there is inconsistency in the extent of such references from chapter to chapter. Maximize Your Rotations does an outstanding job of providing students with a review of the tools needed for practice experiences. Moreover, it offers students an overview of what to expect during any given practice experience type, the kinds of activities in which the student will be engaged, how to best prepare for the experience, and the types of resources needed. It also describes what is expected from students in terms of appropriate behaviors, types of project and assignments, and typical work products.Although the book is nicely aligned with contemporary practice, it will be important for the author to periodically review and update this text to maintain its relevancy and currency. In future revisions, the author might also consider incorporation of strategies for preparing for the North American Pharmacist Licensure Examination and Multistate Pharmacy Jurisprudence Examination, a more robust discussion and inclusion of the ACPE Standards and Guidelines that drive experiential education, and a more expansive conversation regarding the consideration of and preparation for career opportunities other than residencies and fellowships.Maximize Your Rotations makes for an excellent addition to any experiential student s library. The case questions embedded in the text could further serve to stimulate robust discussion as part of orientation programs and courses dedicated to experiential education. Experiential directors may wish to consider this text as a requirement for students embarking upon their practice experiences. --Janet K. Astle"AJPE" (01/08/2014)" **Description**This book provides a clear and concise overview of what pharmacy students canexpect when they begin their IPPE and APPE rotations. The first part, "TheEssentials," covers the basics a student should be proficient in prior tobeginning their rotation experience; part II, "The Particulars," furtherexplains the specifics of varying rotation sites and the skills necessary to besuccessful; and part III, "Life After Rotations," covers the transition fromstudent to pharmacist. **Purpose**The purpose is to give pharmacy students a place to turn to for all thingsexperiential. The book provides a glimpse of the general expectations andtypical activities of rotations before they begin, allowing for betterpreparation and performance. Although the purpose seems simple, the objectivesare important to pharmacy students and pharmacists who act as, or plan tobecome, preceptors. Students may have many questions and concerns prior tobeginning an IPPE or an APPE rotation, and the majority are not necessarilycovered in the traditional classroom setting. The book will have specialrelevance for a student who has little or no work experience or limitedexposure to the variety within the pharmacy profession. It allows students toreview expectations and gives them a place to refer to prior to and duringrotations. **Audience**While the book is written primarily for a student audience, residents can use itas a reference and practitioners, as a guide and resource. It targets a broadrange of specialties, including internal medicine and clinical rotations, hospital or health system pharmacy, community pharmacy, management andleadership rotations, academia, ambulatory care, and geriatrics. I thinkpharmacy practitioners as a whole will find this book useful, not juststudents. The author is a clinical pharmacist and an assistant professor, andtherefore would have particular expertise in the section on academia andhospital and health system pharmacy. The many contributors have experience intheir chapter topics. **Features**The book covers the many aspects of IPPE and APPE rotations in a concise manner, and contains essential information such as professionalism, drug informationquestions, and case presentations that are crucial for success as a student anda practitioner. It describes the specifics of each ASHP-recognized rotationtype and thoroughly explains it. The book concludes with information aboutstarting a career, staying informed, and giving back, which are all essentialelements of becoming a successful pharmacist in any setting. The best aspectsof the book are that it is up to date with current issues in pharmacy practiceand the audience can relate to the discussions of professionalism, rotationtypes, and what actually happens after rotations are concluded. I appreciatedthe section on e-professionalism. As younger generations use online resourcesand social media as outlets, it is important that they maintain a professionalappearance. Cases, case questions, quick tips, figures, and tables areeffectively used to enhance readers' experience. Cases at the beginning of eachchapter are engaging and relevant to the chapter topic discussed. The casequestions are brief, but are useful for applying knowledge and reviewing thematerial. The figures and tables are excellent, especially in the chapters onambulatory care and becoming a preceptor. This is information I will use toenhance my own practice and interactions with students. The only shortcominginvolves the chapter on evaluation of medical literature and journal clubs.This could actually be split into two separate chapters that provide greaterdetail, including an expanded list of common clinical trial terminology (i.e., open-label, parallel-group, cross-over, single-blind, etc.) as well as a moredetailed example of a journal club format. **Assessment**This is a useful, high quality, and practical book for both students andpractitioners who precept. I could find no other books that summarize andcollate information about IPPE and APPE rotations like this one does. I willuse it to improve and expand my practice and role as a preceptor. ----------------------------------------------------------- Weighted Numerical Score: 86 - 3 Stars--Jennifer L.
