Earn your Pharmacy-Based Point-of-Care Test & Treat National Certificate at Convention! Separate Registration Required.
Point-of-care test and treat 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 utilizes CLIA-waived (Clinical Laboratory Improvement Amendments -waived) tests that offer near immediate results in non-laboratory settings. Pharmacists are increasingly offering this public health service of test and treat to promote prevention, early detection, and disease management.
- Practical, hands-on training in point-of-care testing and treatment in at least 12 disease states
- 20 credit hours of ACPE-accredited continuing education
- Unique dual home study and in-person structure
- Access to and training on the interactive, web-based education platform
- Instructor training necessary to train others on the program
The NASPA Pharmacy-based Point-of-Care Test & Treat National Certificate Program provides an opportunity to gain the skills and information necessary to develop a testing program such as influenza, Group A Streptococcus, HIV, Hepatitis C, coronaviruses, and chronic diseases. The target audience for the certificate program is pharmacists, pharmacy technicians, student pharmacists, academia, and pharmacy association staff. While the program is primarily designed for pharmacists, non-pharmacists interested in point-of-care test and treat are also welcome to complete the program.
The 20-hour ACPE-accredited certificate program includes comprehensive material regarding key disease states, physical assessment, point-of-care tests and treatment, and business models through:
- 16 hours of home study
- 4 hours of live training
Participants take an online assessment after each of the 12 modules of home study, in addition to a cumulative assessment (must pass 70% within three attempts), and then their proficiency to conduct physical assessments and offer point-of-care testing services is assessed in the live/virtual training. Upon successful completion of both portions of the program and all program evaluations, participants are awarded a certificate of completion and pharmacists can receive 20 hours of Continuing Pharmacy Education (CPE) credit.
