The American Pharmacists Association (APhA) developed The Pharmacist and Patient-Centered Diabetes Care Certificate Training Program, 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.

 

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.

 

Key Learning Objectives of the Live Training Seminar

At the completion of this activity, the participant will be able to:

  • 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.
