Abstract

Objective. To describe a successful remediation for an Acute Care Medicine advanced pharmacy practice experience (APPE) in a student with multiple learning deficits. Methods. A literature review of pharmacy and medical experiential remediation was conducted to identify best practices to implement prior to designing the remediation for our student case. Based on this search and experience as preceptors, a three-phase remediation was designed: one week for assessment, two weeks for development of learning skills and strategies and six weeks for an on-campus APPE. Success of the remediation was determined by student performance, as defined by the APPE preceptor, in all relevant 2013 Center for the Advancement of Pharmacy Education (CAPE) educational outcomes. Results. Baseline assessment indicated that the student was below minimal competency in six of 13 relevant 2013 CAPE educational outcomes. Upon completion of the three-part remediation, the student repeated the Acute Care Medicine APPE, achieving better than minimal competency in all 13 outcomes. The student demonstrated significant improvement in nine of 13 CAPE educational outcomes. Conclusion. This student case provides a novel and successful blueprint for remediation of APPE. However, more evidence-based literature is needed to guide educators in experiential remediation.
