APhA’s The Pharmacist & Patient-Centered Diabetes Care certificate training program (5th Edition) 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 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 Pharmacist & Patient-Centered Diabetes Care certificate training program has two components: online interactive self-study with assessment; the live seminar which includes demonstrating competency in blood pressure testing, self-injection techniques, diabetic foot exam, and blood glucose testing, followed up with online evaluation and assessment. A Certificate of Achievement will be awarded to participants who successfully complete all program components

 

Key learning objectives for the live training seminar:

  • Evaluate the overall health status of patients with diabetes in terms of recommended monitoring and interventions, and formulate strategies for closing gaps in care
  • Propose modifications to a patient’s drug therapy regimen rooted in evidence-based algorithms for diabetes management
  • Recommend dietary interventions to support optimal glycemic control and weight loss (when indicated) in patients with diabetes
  • Analyze and interpret a patient’s self-monitoring of blood glucose results and use the results to identify needed changes in the diabetes management plan
  • Demonstrate proper technique for measuring blood pressure, administering injections, obtaining fingerstick samples for blood glucose monitoring, operating blood glucose meters, and performing monofilament foot testing
  • Integrate the varied aspects of comprehensive diabetes care into efficient, sensitive, respectful pharmacist-patient interactions that support optimal patient self-management
  • Describe ways in which pharmacists can keep abreast of new developments and take advantage of professional opportunities in diabetes care.
