KPhA presents: NASPA Pharmacy-Based Point-of-Care Test and Treat Certificate

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 utilizes CLIA-waived (Clinical Laboratory Improvement Amendments-waived) tests that offer near immediate results in non-laboratory settings.

Pharmacists and pharmacies are increasingly offering this public health service to promote prevention, early detection, and disease management. 

This course offers 20 hours of ACPE CE. The complete course will consist of 16 hours of self-study and a 4 hour live component. The self-study needs to be complete before your live component date. A skills assessment will take place immediately following the live programming.

This class is available for pharmacists, pharmacy technicians, and student pharmacists and is ACPE-accredited through the Michigan Pharmacists Association (ACPE Universal Activity #0112-0000-22-200-B04-P/T). Credit only is awarded for completion of the entire 20 contact hour program. Credit must be claimed within 30 days of completing the program.

KPhA Point of Care Test and Treat 101

For pharmacists and technicians that will be involved in point of care, KPhA is finishing up development of a 4 hour CE that will be ACPE approved to count towards the requirement in the Kansas statewide test and treat protocols. Expected to be available by late June, this will be a good option for both pharmacists and technicians. The course will be presented as both a live option as well as on demand. Documentation of a skills assessment after the course is complete will be required. Join the waitlist to be notified as soon as this course is available!

Be sure to check out the Kansas Board of Pharmacy's published protocols and FAQ documents to learn more about the specific requirements in Kansas.
