RxAdvanced: Guide to Natural Medicines

CE Credits: 11 Hours | Course Expiration: March 31, 2026
Price: $199

Local pharmacists in communities across the U.S. are respected guardians of personal health. That’s obvious by the number of Americans who depend on pharmacists to answer questions about natural medicines and supplements. Do supplements and natural remedies work? And if so, how safe are they, especially when paired with prescription medications or certain health conditions?

Whether by personal choice or by recommendation from a healthcare provider, a majority of adults now use at least one natural supplement to replace or to complement prescription medications. Every day, new natural products are available as treatments for certain conditions. Pharmacists want to share authoritative, unbiased guidance about dietary supplements and homeopathic remedies with patients, yet they lack reliable sources that deliver the necessary knowledge and clinical expertise they need to do so.

Access to this program is valid for 12 months from date of purchase. Courses must be completed before access expires.

Expert Knowledge, Better Patient Care with TRC’s RxAdvanced Program.

TRC Healthcare introduces the latest RxAdvanced program: Guide to Natural Medicines to help pharmacists respond with confidence when patients ask about alternative drug therapies. Our online, self-guided training for pharmacists is one of the industry’s only comprehensive resources for building evidence-based competency in natural medicines and supplements.

What Pharmacists Like About RxAdvanced: Guide to Natural Medicines.

Pharmacists who complete RxAdvanced: Guide to Natural Medicines can improve patient care by understanding research related to natural medicines and supplements.

Our curriculum prepares pharmacists to:

  • Prevent drug interactions. Learn how some natural products can interfere with certain prescription drugs or cause harmful reactions.
  • Reduce health risks. Nutritional supplements and integrative therapies aren’t for everyone. Determine which patients should avoid some natural medicines due to existing health conditions.
  • Educate patients. Share knowledge based on scholarly, peer-reviewed research that sheds a scientific light on the safety and efficacy of alternative therapies.
  • Respond quickly. Use acquired expertise to guide patients in spontaneous interactions rather than searching for reliable insights during peak times of customer service.
  • Inform consumer choices. Be the credible experts consumers trust to clarify decisions about product quality, purity, dosage, and the potential side effects of herbal medicines.
  • Refine research skills. Enhance search queries in TRC Healthcare’s authoritative Natural Medicines database, an exhaustive, searchable library that covers over 1,400 natural medicine monographs and rates more than 185,000 commercial products.

Easy to Use.

RxAdvanced: Guide to Natural Medicines is offered in a convenient online format that combines written and video content plus a built-in progress tracker to let you pick up training wherever you pause. Coursework can be completed 24/7, in small increments, in any order. Pharmacists get 11 hours of ACPE-accredited CE upon completion. Regular updates keep you current with new science that can inform your practice and patient care.
