Local Clinical Skills Competition 2019-2020
Kathy E. Monangai, Vice President
The Student National Pharmaceutical Association (SNPhA) Clinical Skills Competition Program is an educational opportunity for SNPhA members to display their pharmaceutical knowledge and patient assessment skills through case presentations and patient counseling. It is conducted by the National Office at both Regional Conferences and the National Conference. Local Clinical Skills Competitions (CSCs) are planned, organized, and conducted by SNPhA chapters to provide their members with an opportunity to demonstrate their pharmaceutical skills and prepare for the Regional and National CSC.
Both the Regional and National competitions and their prizes have been funded by our long-time sponsor, The Kroger Co! The competition is completed by teams of two students. All participants will receive their patient’s prescription information before the counseling start time and will be required to counsel the patient on appropriate information and use of the medications. The patient may display personality characteristics or other barriers to challenge the participants’ ability to convey pertinent therapy information.
