PHARMPOWER BOOST

PharmPower is a leading developer of PEBC-style questions which are realistic and applicable to exams, as well as clinical practice.

Our multiple choice questions feature a combination of knowledge and application questions, with a detailed explanation for each correct answer.

  • Knowledge questions are simple to read and answer.  These questions often require memorization.

  • Application questions utilize knowledge to solve more difficult case-based problems where patients have multiple comorbidies and medications.  These questions often require thorough reading and understanding.

Our OSCE cases feature a combination of interactive and non-interactive stations, with a detailed explanation of a complete answer.

  • Interactive cases require communication with a patient, caregiver or prescriber.  Our cases are designed to improve your interviewing and critical thinking skills.  Each case allows you to pre-select from a list of questions to gather more information to solve a drug therapy problem.

  • Non-interactive cases involve formulating a written response, including prescription checking and drug information questions.

Our multiple choice questions and OSCE cases cover important material which all entry-to-practice pharmacists should know.  Such information is taken from recommended resources including:

  • Compendium of Therapeutic Choices

  • Compendium of Therapeutics for Minor Ailments

 

Our multiple choice questions and OSCE cases are tailored to the nine NAPRA competencies in the examination blueprint, which include:

  • Competency 1: Ethical, Legal and Professional Responsibilities

  • Competency 2: Patient Care

  • Competency 3: Product Distribution

  • Competency 4: Practice Setting

  • Competency 5: Health Promotion

ABOUT THE EXAM

The PEBC Qualifying Exam is a registration requirement for pharmacists in Canada.  The exam tests for knowledge and skills expected by an entry-to-practice pharmacist, and consists of two parts - Part I (multiple choice) and Part II (objective structured clinical exam OSCE).  The exam is based on the nine competencies outlined by NAPRA, each with assigned weightings and pass level.  The exam is offered twice per year in May and November.

The multiple choice portion of the Qualifying Exam consists of 200 questions as follows:

  • 150 of which are graded questions and 50 of which are pretest questions (not counted towards grading, but may be used for future exams).

  • These questions are organized into two sets of 100 questions each, and 126 minutes are allotted for each section.

The OSCE portion of the Qualifying Exam consists of 13 stations as follows:

  • 10 of which are interactive cases, 2 of which are non-interactive cases and 1 pretest case (not counted towards grading, but may be used for future exams).
