APhA Certificate Training Programs (CTPs)
Certificate Training Programs, officially termed practice-based activities by the Accreditation Council for Pharmacy Education (ACPE), are structured and systematic post-graduate continuing pharmacy education experiences for pharmacists designed to instill, expand, or enhance practice competencies through the acquisition of specified knowledge, skills, attitudes and performance behaviors. APhA certificate training programs involve in-depth commitment on the part of learners, including both self-study and attendance at live seminar presentations.
 
The Delivering Medication Therapy Management Certificate Training Program is an active learning seminar in which participants practice a variety of communication techniques to elicit a patient's medication experience and identify medication-related problems, using cases based on the real-life experiences of MTM providers. Participants will gain experience interviewing patients, identifying and prioritizing medication-related problems, developing and implementing interventions, and documenting activities. In addition, participants will have the opportunity to explore various business models and billing strategies and discuss plans for implementation. Additional pre-seminar self-study modules, case studies, hands-on patient interviews, and assessment practice sessions, pharmacists will obtain the clinical knowledge and skills needed to establish medication therapy management services. Completion of case work pre- and post-seminar is required to receive a Certificate of Achievement.
