Not directly a med safety topic, but I think some of us are also residency directors or preceptors.
our site is planning to start a PGY-1 residency program. As part of the process our pharmacists would need to undergo the aspects of preceptor development and certification. It has been difficult to have staff volunteer for resident preceptor spots due to the BCPS test prep, presentations, publications, etc. For sites that have gone through this growing phase - what measures did you take to have your staff successfully transition into these expanded roles? Did you:
-Schedule 'study time' during the work day?
-Pay staff for hours they spent preparing at home? Other monetary incentives?
-Update job descriptions to require certifications? If so, how did you follow through on this?
