Education Planning and Application
Topics selected for the VPhA 136th Annual Convention were developed by the VPhA Meetings and Education Committee based upon input from surveys and evaluations from attendees at the 2016 Annual Convention. Additional input was obtained from the various specialty sections of VPhA, the VPhA Board of Directors, and from review of surveys of other state associations of their members’ needs. The VPhA Meetings and Education Committee utilized contemporary literature search to determine the level of education and educational gaps of members in order to design specific topics and learning objectives.
