NACDS launched its national point-of-care testing tour April 19-20 at the University of Nebraska Medical Center College of Pharmacy in Omaha. NACDS chain members, college faculty and state association staff attended the capacity session. More than 400 participants are currently registered for additional sessions on the multi-city tour.
…more and more patients are looking to their pharmacists to provide innovative services that further help maintain their health and wellness, including point-of-care testing.
Designed for community pharmacy, academia and pharmacy association staff, the Community Pharmacy-Based Point-of-Care Testing certificate program trains participants to administer a variety of point-of-care tests, as well as health and physical assessments. Specifically, the accredited certificate program includes 20 hours of Continuing Pharmacy Education (CPE) credit, for those who successfully complete course requirements and assessments, including 12 hours of home study and eight hours of live training about disease states, physical assessments, point-of-care tests, collaborative practice models and business models.
NACDS is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Pharmacy Education as a provider of continuing pharmacy education.
