DSN adds Quick Credit CPE for busy community pharmacy teams

BY Vivian Lee

Drug Store News, an ACPE accredited provider of continuing pharmacy education for more than the 30 years, is dedicated to fulfilling the CPE program’s mission that includes providing engaging CPE activities, designed specifically for the community pharmacist and technician. Because the demands placed on the community pharmacy team continue to grow, Drug Store News has responded with a new option to assist busy professionals in meeting their development needs.

Released monthly, DSN Quick Credit lessons were added to the traditional CPE library as an alternative to the existing live and home-study programs that range from 1 contact hour to 15 contact hours or more. DSN Quick Credit lessons are intended to be completed in 15 minutes and provide 0.25 contact hours or 0.025 CEUs of knowledge-based CPE. DSN Publisher, Eric Savitch, was excited to see the release of the new format. “These new lessons leverage the responsive design features of the new DSN education platform and allow subscribers to quickly earn CPE credits wherever they are, using a smartphone, tablet or PC. Our initial release targets law credits and will allow users to accumulate up to 3 contact hours each year,” Savitch offered.

Nancy Lyons, DSN’s Director of CE and Clinical Content offered an additional perspective. “As community pharmacists and technicians work to complete the continuing education credits needed to maintain professional licenses and certifications, DSN is focused on offering programs that also support learning, retention and overall professional development. The DSN Quick Credit programs present timely topics that allow learners to experience multiple small doses of education each month, allowing frequent and recent opportunities,” Lyons added.

DSN Quick Credit lessons are released at least once each month in the Wednesday Practice Insights e-newsletter. Previous DSN Quick Credit lessons can be found in the Pharmacist CPE Library or Technician CPE Library on the CE platform. To claim credit, pharmacists and technicians should login or register with a DSN CE profile that includes an accurate personal NABP e-profile ID and 4-digit MMDD date of birth. As always, individual and corporate subscribers will receive DSN Quick Credit FREE. Non-subscribers may purchase the lesson for just $1.99 or purchase a yearly Pharmacist Subscription or Technician Subscription to take advantage of all DSN CPE created for community pharmacists and technicians.

August's offering:

DSN Quick Credit: Naloxone dispensing and liability: Pharmacists

Hy-Vee names Gosch, Tweeten to EVP positions

BY David Salazar
WEST DES MOINES, Iowa — Hy-Vee recently added two new EVPs that will also sit on the company’s board of directors. Donna Tweeten has been named the company’s EVP and chief marketing officer, and Jeremy Gosch has been named to the position of EVP and chief merchandising officer. The two will be named permanent board members at the Hy-Vee stockholders’ meeting in December, and Tweeten will be added to the board’s executive committee.
 
Gosch began working at Hy-Vee as a part-time clerk in Coralville in 1995, rising through the ranks to become the store director of the Eldora Hy-Vee in 2000. In 2012, he was named VP operations for the northeast district, and was named assistant VP of general merchandise and health and beauty care in 2014. Last year, he became SVP merchandising, with chief merchandising officer being added to his title in early 2016. 
 
“Jeremy has been very successful in every area he has been asked to lead. I am very excited to see the new energy and great leadership Jeremy will bring to this very important position,” Hy-Vee chairman, president and CEO Randy Edeker said. “He has already brought great drive and a can-do spirit with keen insight to complex ideas.”
 
Tweeten joined the company in 2006 at assistant VP communications, and in 2011 was selected to be VP brand image. In 2013 she became VP marketing and was named chief marketing officer in 2013. 
 
“Now is the right time to elevate the leader with the insight, skills and creativity to help guide Hy-Vee forward in our marketing and brand development,” Edeker said. “I know Donna will be a great example of an insightful, strong leader for years to come.”
