AN ONLINE CONTINUING EDUCATION COURSE FACILITATED BY Lawrence P. Carey, Pharm.D. and/or Michael A. Mancano, Pharm.D.

Prescribing in women’s health has become increasingly complex. In addition to prescription and
over the counter medications, many midwifery clients also use dietary supplements and herbal
treatments, necessitating that the midwife keep abreast of the common usage and potential side
effects of these therapies. In this 60-hour, online course, busy clinicians learn at their own pace and
interact online with colleagues within a 6-week time frame. Learn current information, tips, tools,
and resources to obtain or maintain prescriptive authority, and keep up-to-date with changes in
prescribing practices. Course also covers indications, dosages and adverse effects of medications
commonly prescribed, as well as supplements, herbs, and traditional remedies. An estimated 10
hours a week should be allocated in order to be successful. The course is asynchronous, meaning
that students log in when convenient versus the same time every day. Students must possess a
working knowledge of basic computer skills including word processing, e-mail, internet searches, and
navigating the web in order to successfully complete this course.
