St. Louis College of Pharmacy is pleased to partner with the National Association of Chain Drug Stores as they kick off their Point-of-Care Testing Program. We will be hosting a session of this program on our campus August 3 - 4, 2015.
Point-of-care testing empowers clinicians to use effective, fast technology to aid their decision making at the “point-of-care” to improve patient health. Pharmacy-based point-of-care testing is done as part of care coordination.
Designed for community pharmacy, academia and pharmacy association staff, the Community Pharmacy-Based Point-of-Care Testing certificate program will train 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. Additional information about this program can be found here.
Registration for this event is limited; interested participants should complete NACDS's registration survey as soon as possible.
