The American Pharmacists Association (APhA) has designed this activity to help you provide up-to-date diabetes care. The resources and materials for this program are based on resources and materials from the current edition of APhA's certificate training program, "The Pharmacist and Patient-Centered Diabetes Care". "Test Your Knowledge: Diabetes Care" consists of resource materials, learning reinforcement exercises and an assessment. All activities are related to various topics in diabetes care. You will be given two opportunities to pass the assessment with a passing score of 70% or better. If you do not pass on your first attempt, we encourage you to use the resource materials to identify your gaps in knowledge prior to your second attempt.
