UHCOP AMCP

I have a friend up north asking about CER/ICER or the Delphani grading tool. I did not use these in residency nor have ever heard of them in the field. I was wondering if your Chapter has used these tools in a P&T Competition and know about these? If so, if you have any tools or references to share, I would greatly appreciate it! Please feel free to reach out to me at [email protected] or message me on Facebook. Thanks!
Very informative informational! :)
