Meet. Learn. Succeed in Compounding

By Jeff Carson, RPh, NCPA Executive Committee member, IACP Member, and owner of Oakdell Pharmacy, San Antonio, TX 

The experts say that adults learn differently than children.  Perhaps that’s true.  Or perhaps our expectations are different.  When we set out to gain more knowledge in a formal manner, we want to get the most for our money, learn something that we can put to good use in our daily lives, and also get that education in a fun and entertaining environment.

We believe the motto of NCPA’s Annual Convention and Trade Exposition, (October 8-12, 2011 in Nashville, TN)–Meet. Learn. Succeed–envelops those principles of adult education. The NCPA Annual meeting is a great opportunity for first-rate exhibits, networking, and entertainment along with the latest, most innovative continuing education around.

Much of our continuing education programs are designed by independent pharmacists for independent pharmacists. The association’s special committee on compounding, comprised of current practitioners and experts in the field, has been hard at work for the last several months to create programs specifically for those of us who compound.

I am proud to have led the committee this year to develop CE sessions that we believe will exceed your expectations, provide value for your investment, give you something new to take back to your pharmacy, and maybe even give you a laugh or two. 

That’s why we invite you to Meet your peers in Nashville. Networking in person is one of the most valuable experiences there is in today’s fast-paced world. We have identified four areas to help you Learn something new and applicable to your compounding practice that can help you Succeed.  Come join us and we think you will agree.
