APhA is proud to announce that “The Pharmacist and Patient-Centered Diabetes Care” Certificate Training Program has won the Alliance for Continuing Education in the Health Professions’ 2015 Award for Outstanding Live CE Activity. This award recognizes an organization for innovation and excellence in the design, educational format, and instructional delivery of a live CE activity or educational initiative.
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.
