Pharmacy-Based Immunization Delivery is an innovative and interactive training program that teaches pharmacists the skills necessary to become a primary source for vaccine information and administration. The program teaches the basics of immunology and focuses on practice implementation and legal/regulatory issues. This ACPE activity does not provide a certification in this topic but rather advanced professional training.

There are three components to the certificate training program:

  • 12 hour (1.2 CEU) self-study modules with case studies and assessment exam 
  • 8.0 hour (0.80 CEU) live seminar with final exam 
  • Hands-on assessment of intramuscular and subcutaneous injection technique 
     

Self-Study Modules Description and Learning Objectives

The self-study learning activity is designed to ensure that all participants have an understanding of vaccine-preventable diseases and the role of pharmacists as vaccine advocates and administrators.  There are five learning modules that present in-depth information on immunology, practice implementation, and legal and regulatory issues as noted below, with appropriate references to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) resource publication, Epidemiology and Prevention of Vaccine-Preventable Disease.  The self-study program includes a self-assessment test and real-life case studies that are designed to help reinforce and evaluate participants' understanding of key information and concepts.

Module 1. Pharmacists, Vaccines, and Public Health
Module 2. Overview of Immunology and Vaccine Development
Module 3. Vaccine-Preventable Diseases
Module 4. Patient Care Considerations for Immunizing Pharmacists
Module 5. Operating a Pharmacy-Based Immunization Program

 

Live Training Seminar Description and Learning Objectives

The second part of the certificate training program is an active learning seminar focusing on pharmacy practice implementation.  The live training seminar is based on the experience of practitioners involved in immunization advocacy and administration.  The training seminar reinforces and expands on the self-study program and addresses areas such as immunization needs, legal and regulatory issues, and injection-technique training. Participants will be expected to practice giving intramuscular and subcutaneous injections on each other.

Objectives

  • Describe strategies for increasing immunization rates, including physician collaborations, community level activities, and immunization coalition activities.
  • Review adult patient cases and make patient-specific recommendations based on the appropriate immunization schedule.
  • Review a pediatric patient case and make patient-specific recommendations based on the appropriate immunization schedule.
  • Demonstrate effective strategies for communicating with patients who have concerns about vaccines.
  • Describe current evidence that explores the relationship between autism and vaccines.

The Pharmacist and Patient-Centered Diabetes Care Certificate Training Program is a newly revised, 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 goals of the certificate training program are to:

  • Provide comprehensive instruction in current standards of care for patients with diabetes.
  • Increase pharmacists’ confidence in serving as the drug therapy expert on the diabetes health care team.
  • Refresh pharmacists’ knowledge of the pathophysiology of diabetes and the acute and long?term complications of the disease.
  • Familiarize pharmacists with important concepts in nutrition, exercise, and weight control that contribute to optimal diabetes care.
  • Provide training on the use of diabetes-related devices and physical assessments involved with optimal diabetes care.
  • Describe business opportunities and roles for pharmacists in improving health outcomes for patients with diabetes.
 
The self-study portion of The Pharmacist & Patient-Centered Diabetes Care Certificate Training Program is approved for 15 hours (1.5 CEUs) of continuing pharmacy education credit. The live seminar is approved for 8 hours (0.8 CEUs) of continuing pharmacy education credit.

Objectives

  • Evaluate the overall health status of patients with diabetes in terms of recommended monitoring and interventions, and formulate strategies for closing gaps in care.
  • Propose modifications to a patient’s drug therapy regimen rooted in evidence-based algorithms for diabetes management.
  • Recommend dietary interventions to support optimal glycemic control and weight loss (when indicated) in patients with diabetes.
