Companies interested in holding a satellite symposium must complete and email their Satellite Symposia Application. Applications for submission opened April 7, 2014. All email submissions must include the following items:
These items must be received the same day the application is submitted. Proposals must also adhere to the ASCP Satellite Symposia Guidelines and the following criteria: Pharmacists should be the primary target audience for educational activities. A pharmacist should be involved in the planning process to determine activity content. Multidisciplinary activities are acceptable if activity is of sufficient relevance to pharmacy.
Needs Assessment: ASCP requires that a needs assessment be conducted and submitted with the application materials. In this analysis, the gap in quality patient care and/or pharmacist knowledge should be identified. A plan for assessing the outcomes of the education at the learning and/or performance/behavior level must also be included.
Presentation Balance: Activities will provide for an in-depth presentation with fair, full disclosure and equitable balance. Appropriate topics shall be distinguished from topics that are promotional or appear to be intended for the purpose of endorsing either a specific drug or commercial product. Faculty are expected to openly disclose any off-label, experimental, or investigational use of drugs or devices in their presentations.
Speakers: All proposed speakers must be qualified to present information on the topic identified for presentation. Speakers identified in the proposal should be contacted and notified of their possible participation in a satellite activity prior to the proposal submission. Curriculum vitae or resume for each speaker must be included in the completed application. Failure to submit this information may delay the approval of your application.
Continuing Pharmacy Education: All symposia must offer continuing pharmacy education. Accreditation of these activities must be provided by an ACPE-accredited provider of continuing pharmacy education.
