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 accredited certificate program includes 20 hours of Continuing Pharmacy Education (CPE) credit, 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. Periodically, the training will provide the certificate program and the Train-the-Trainer instructor course all in one day. Check our Upcoming Trainings page for more details at this link.
New training sessions are being added regularly in 2020 for this increasingly popular program. The innovative Test2Learn platform enables students to learn about this cutting edge topic by using real genetic data in highly-interactive exercises. Learners are 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 all in one day. See the Upcoming Trainings page for registration.
