There are three learning taxonomies referenced in the objectives. The first is Bloom's taxonomy1 which describes levels of learning in
the cognitive domain. This is the primary domain reflected in the outcomes, goals and objectives. As stated in "Staff Development in Pharmacy Practice"2, "Cognitive learning involves remembering or recognizing knowledge or developing intellectual skills or abilities."
The second taxonomy, the affective domain, which addresses the realm of emotions and values, is described in Krathwohl's taxonomy3.
The third, defined in Simpson's taxonomy4, is the psychomotor domain, which deals with physical actions and handling of materials.
This program will primarily cover the cognitive domain due to it's heavy use in the outcomes, goals and objectives. For further detail on the other domains, refer to the references in the footnotes.
