Clinical community pharmacist (CCP) has begun to appear recently in various venues. It was in the title of a continuing education (CE) session presented at the recent National Community Pharmacists Association convention. The CE session was presented by a panel of innovative community pharmacy practitioners who have been leaders in new direct patient care services.
I just want to point out a few things here:
1) That is the entire opening paragraph, complete and unchanged, of a column in the current issue of Pharmacy Times about, well...who the hell knows? Some character called Clinical Community Pharmacist evidently. Maybe some sort of superhero that can appear in multiple venues at once? If I want to learn about him I guess I'll have to take one of those CE lessons, because there sure isn't much who,what, when, where, or why in this sorry example of news reporting.
2) This was written by a college graduate. He claims to have a masters degree.
3) This illiterate still has a regular gig writing for a national pharmacy trade magazine and Jim Plagakis does not. Chew on that awhile.
4) This also presumably got past an editor at some point. If I ever sent her a turd like this my editor would probably fly out to California and make me eat a dictionary.
I have to go put some water in my eyeballs now, because that piece of work made them hurt and I'm afraid they are about to catch fire.
