In partnership with the University of Pittsburgh School of Pharmacy, NACDS has adapted the innovative Test2Learn platform to enable students to learn about this cutting edge topic by using real genetic data in highly-interactive exercises. Through on-line home study and in-person live components, participants will learn the principles of pharmacogenomics and its practical implications in disease states. Learners will also be trained to decipher tests, translate results, and make recommendations to help optimize medication regimens while receiving the instruction necessary to administer the training to others.
The National Association of Chain Drug Stores (NACDS), in partnership with the National Foundation for Infectious Diseases (NFID), is pleased to make available the program, HPV Vaccination: Recommendations and Strategies for Improving Coverage, originally presented as a live webinar on March 21, and Increasing Influenza Rates among College Students, originally recorded on April 30. The recorded programs are open to all interested parties on NACDS and NFID’s web portals as enduring education.
Designed for community pharmacy, academia and pharmacy association staff, the NACDS 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. The program offers pharmacist education and training to provide innovative pharmacy services for patients. Specifically, the accredited certificate program includes 20 hours of Continuing Pharmacy Education (CPE) credit, for those who successfully complete course requirements and assessments, including 16 hours of home study and 4 hours of live training about disease states, physical assessments, point-of-care tests, collaborative practice models and business models.
