APhA Pharmacist & Patient-Centered Diabetes Care Certificate Program - 2020 Offerings


There are currently no scheduled offerings for this program. New courses will be added as they are scheduled. If interested in being added to our interest list or contracting a private program (with at least 10 participants) please contact Austin Companion.

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.
