Course Description:
The American Pharmacists Association (APhA) produced The Pharmacist and Patient-Centered Diabetes Care Certificate Training Program, an educational experience intended to provide pharmacists with the knowledge, abilities, and confidence required to present effective, evidence-based diabetes care. The session presents extensive preparation in prevailing diabetes notions and patterns of care and includes case studies and hands-on skills training concentrated 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, examining and interpreting self-monitoring of blood glucose results, and assessing the overall health status of patients to know the necessitated monitoring and interventions.

Goals and Learning Objectives:
The purpose of The Pharmacist and Patient-Centered Diabetes Care is to educate the pharmacist on strategies to integrate diabetes education and management into practice. This major goal combines the goal of pharmaceutical care, which is to assures that patients make the best use of their medications and achieve the desired therapeutic outcomes.
Specific program goals are to:
• Implement complete instruction on popular standards of care for patients with diabetes.
• Enhance pharmacists’ ability to employ pharmacotherapeutic information and assist 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 complexities of the disease.
• Familiarize pharmacists with essential concepts in nutrition, exercise, and weight control that contribute to optimal diabetes care.
• Present training on the application of diabetes-related devices and physical assessments involved with optimal diabetes care.
• Explain business opportunities and roles for pharmacists in improving health outcomes for patients with diabetes.
