Total Learning Concepts, a biopharma training content and training solutions company specializing in eLearning, has been approved to provide continuing education courses that will enable District of Columbia pharmaceutical sales representatives to earn credit toward maintaining their Pharmaceutical Detailer’s licenses. Total Learning Concepts is a division of Publicis Strategic Solutions Group, a leading provider of multichannel message delivery solutions for the life sciences industry.
Three eLearning courses—Compliance and Pharmaceutical Selling, Clinical Pharmacology, and Selling in the Managed Care Marketplace—have been approved by the District of Columbia Board of Pharmacy. Each course will provide 4 continuing education credits in accordance with the district’s Safe Rx Amendment Act. The law requires employees and independent contractors of pharmaceutical manufacturers to be licensed by the District of Columbia Board of Pharmacy and to earn continuing education credits, among other provisions.
“The Total Learning Concepts team is excited to partner with the District of Columbia Board of Pharmacy in providing high-quality continuing education opportunities to pharmaceutical detailers who work within the District,” said Suzanne Burrell, Vice President of Operations for Total Learning Concepts. “Through the courses, detailers will receive continuing education credits in important areas such as compliance laws and regulations, basic principles of pharmacology, and managed care organization models and market trends,” Burrell added.
Compliance and Pharmaceutical Selling instructs detailers in basic information about compliance laws and regulations and how to apply their knowledge to their everyday promotional efforts. The interactive learning program consists of five eBooks, each of which includes one or more eGames that review, test, and reinforce learner understanding.
Clinical Pharmacology introduces representatives to the basic principles of clinical pharmacology and serves as an ongoing reference guide. Learning clinical pharmacology is crucial to the success of pharmaceutical sales representatives, and mastering basic principles of clinical pharmacology provides a foundational understanding of pharmaceutical structure and mechanism of action.
Selling in the Managed Care Marketplace explains the various managed care organization models, reveals market trends, and examines formularies and cost controls. It also provides insight into the motives that drive several key managed care stakeholders.
Total Learning Concepts has submitted additional programs to the DC Board of Pharmacy for approval toward continuing education credit for pharmaceutical sales representatives. Further approvals are pending.
