Event description

Description

This accredited Certificate Program includes 20 hours of continuing pharmacy education – 16 hours of home study and 4 hours of live training about disease states, physical assessment, point-of-care tests, collaborative practice models, and business models.


Program Summary

The NACDS Community Pharmacy-based Point-of-Care Testing Certificate Program provides an opportunity to gain the skills and information necessary to develop a testing program for influenza, Group A Streptococcus, HIV, and Hepatitis C. The target audience for the certificate program is community pharmacists including students, academia, and pharmacy association staff. While the program is primarily designed for community pharmacists, non-pharmacists interested in point-of-care testing are also welcome to complete the program.

The 20-hour ACPE-accredited certificate program includes comprehensive material regarding key disease states, physical assessment, point-of-care tests, collaborative practice models, and business models through:

  • 16 hours of home study
  • 4 hours of live training


Students take an online assessment after each of the 12 modules of home study, in addition to a cumulative assessment (must pass 70% within three attempts), and then their proficiency to conduct physical assessments and offer point-of-care testing services is assessed in the live training. Upon successful completion of both portions of the program and all program evaluations, participants are awarded a certificate of completion and pharmacists can receive 20 hours of Continuing Pharmacy Education (CPE) credit.
