This knowledge-based CPE activity will review selected new drugs released over past 12 months using a “formulary approach.” Each medication’s characteristics such as pharmacology, pharmacokinetics, efficacy, safety, dosing, and cost will be compared to current medications, if any, used for similar indications. The audience will use criteria to determine if the new medication meets the criteria for addition to a health system formulary. The criteria include: is it a new pharmacologic class; is it more efficacious than current treatments; is it safer than current treatments; are there any clinically relevant pharmacokinetic advantages; or is the new medication more cost effective. In addition, new drugs of interest anticipated to be released over the next two years will be briefly discussed.


  • Compare and contrast newly approved drugs with older agents regarding their pharmacology, pharmacokinetics, efficacy, safety, dosage and cost.
  • Discuss the “formulary approach” to evaluating new drugs
  • Describe potential utility of drugs in the pipeline for possible release in the next two years
