Pharmacist’s Letter

Lane Medical Library recently began subscribing to  “The Pharmacist’s Letter,”  an online monthly publication that enables pharmacists and prescribers to make evidence-based decisions about patient care with informed recommendations and clinical resources.  Access to the entire archive is available from the present to 1996.

The Pharmacist’s Letter includes medication recommendations, newly approved drugs, and drugs which have been withdrawn, including the reason.  First-time generics are also listed and their date of availability is given. You can find quick reference drug comparison charts and drug interactions under “Browse → Charts” in the navigation menu. You can also explore information by subject in the “Browse” section.

You can also earn Pharmacy CE/CME credits for completing online quizzes and courses. Create a personal account to begin earning CE.  In addition, pharmacists can receive CE credit for listening to podcasts that offer CE credits.  “CE Organizer” enables you to keep track of all your CE credits and to print statements of credit.  A minimum of two live CE webinars are provided every month, along with new articles written by an editorial team of clinical pharmacists in each issue.  These articles include the latest clinical trial results which provide unbiased, evidence-based recommendations not associated with pharma influence.  Over 200 CE courses with unlimited access are available on demand.

A broad variety of topics are highlighted including COVID-19 resources, along with diabetes and immunization resources.  Natural medicine resources include the latest news, seasonal resources, and common questions.

Use Lane Search to access the Pharmacist’s Letter. If you have questions about using the resource or any other resources available through Lane Library, please reach out to your liaison librarian.
