The American Pharmacists Association (APhA) developed The Pharmacist and Patient-Centered Diabetes Care Certificate Training Program, is an educational experience designed to equip pharmacists with the knowledge, skills, and confidence needed to provide effective, evidence-based diabetes care. The program provides comprehensive instruction in current diabetes concepts and standards of care and 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.

Activity Type: Application and Practice-based
Target Audience: Pharmacists in all practice settings

Goals and Learning Objectives

The goal of The Pharmacist and Patient-Centered Diabetes Care is to teach the pharmacist how to integrate diabetes education and management into practice. This overriding goal incorporates the goal of pharmaceutical care, which is to ensure that patients make the best use of their medications and achieve the desired therapeutic outcomes. Specific program goals are to:

Provide comprehensive instruction on current standards of care for patients with diabetes.
Increase pharmacists’ ability to apply pharmacotherapeutic information and serve 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.
Provide training on the use of diabetes-related devices and physical assessments involved with optimal diabetes care.
Describe business opportunities and roles for pharmacists in improving health outcomes for patients with diabetes.
This ACPE activity does not provide a certification in this topic but rather advanced professional training which upon successful completion the learner will be able to download a certificate of achievement.
