OPA held their first APhA The Pharmacist & Patient-Centered Diabetes Care Certificate Training Program on Thursday, September 25, at the OPA office. The program 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 and self-study components include a total of 23 contact hours (2.3 CEUs) upon successful completion. 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.

Thirty pharmacists and one student pharmacist attended the September 25 program. We will be offering this program again in 2015.

The Pharmacist & Patient-Centered Diabetes Care program was developed jointly by the American Pharmacists Association and is co-sponsored by the American Association of Diabetes Educators. A complete list of learning objectives, and all APhA accreditation information and policies, may be found on APhA’s website, www.pharmacist.com/education.
