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:
Certificate Training Program Components
- 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.
- Offer hands-on training in diabetes-related devices and physical assessment skills relevant to optimal diabetes care.
- Introduce pharmacists to the many varied ways in which they can help to improve health outcomes among patients with diabetes.
The Pharmacist & Patient-Centered Diabetes Care Certificate Training Program is conducted in two parts: a self-study activity with web-based learning reinforcement exercises and a live training seminar where participants demonstrate competency in blood pressure testing, self-injection techniques, diabetic foot exam, and blood glucose testing. To earn a Certificate of Achievement, participants must successfully complete all components of the program.
