NCPA launches boot camp

NCPA launches boot camp

ALEXANDRIA, Va. – The National Community Pharmacists Association Innovation Center is teaming up with PharmFurther to launch the Diabetes Accreditation Boot Camp, a new online course that will prepare pharmacy teams to provide diabetes self-management education (DSME) and support for patients with diabetes.  

DSME is a billable, evidence-based service that allows pharmacy teams to improve patients’ clinical outcomes and quality of life. 

As part of the course, Travis Wolff, PharmD, will provide guidance on how to prepare for DSME accreditation and how to integrate the program into the pharmacy’s workflow. Wolff successfully launched a DSME program in his pharmacy and has helped more than 300 pharmacies with DSME accreditation.  

“With an estimated 13% of adults in the United States having diabetes – and nearly 27% of adults over 65 – independent pharmacy teams have plenty of opportunities to help patients improve their health through Diabetes Self-Management Education,” said Kurt Proctor, PhD, RPh, president of the NCPA Innovation Center. “Not only is this service beneficial to patients, but it can also bolster pharmacies’ bottom line. With the right tools and support, which you’ll gain from our Diabetes Accreditation Boot Camp, getting started can be simple.” 

Registration for the Diabetes Accreditation Boot Camp closes on Jan. 16, 2022, with the six-week course to begin on Jan. 19. Click here for more information and to register via PharmFurther.
