APhA’s The Pharmacist & Patient-Centered Diabetes Care certificate training program (5th Edition) is an intensive educational experience designed to equip pharmacists with the knowledge, skills, and confidence needed to provide effective, evidence-based diabetes care. Five self-study modules provide comprehensive instruction in current diabetes concepts and standards of care. The live seminar incorporates case studies and hands-on skills training focused on the situations most likely to be encountered—as well as the services most needed—in community and ambulatory care practice settings. Participants will gain experience evaluating and adjusting drug therapy regimens for patients with type 1 and type 2 diabetes, counseling patients about lifestyle interventions, analyzing and interpreting self-monitoring of blood glucose results, and assessing the overall health status of patients to identify needed monitoring and interventions.

 

The Pharmacist & Patient-Centered Diabetes Care certificate training program has two components: online interactive self-study with assessment; the live seminar which includes demonstrating competency in blood pressure testing, self-injection techniques, diabetic foot exam, and blood glucose testing, followed up with online evaluation and assessment. A Certificate of Achievement will be awarded to participants who successfully complete all program component.
