Tofade T, Kim J, Lebovitz L, et al. Introduction of a continuing professional development tool for preceptors: lessons learned. J Pharm Pract. 2015;28(2):212-9.

Preceptors from seven pharmacy schools underwent CPD training to gain a better understanding of the process and how to implement it for their future students on rotation with them. Prerecorded ACPE podcasts formed the basis of the web-based training. 42 preceptors completed at least 1 of the 3 educational tutorials. A post training survey was performed six months after the start of this initiative to identify the participants’ perception of its usefulness for students’ and their own lifelong learning approach. Over 90% of the participants agreed or strongly agreed that the “CPD model training, as learned in the webcasts, is beneficial for ongoing preceptor development.”
