PCMH Pharmacist Training
Patient Centered Medical Home Pharmacist Training Program
The College of Pharmacy will be offering an on-site training program from February 26 to March 1, 2018.
This program will prepare pharmacists to run a productive practice in an outpatient clinical environment. The training consists of 4 days of live training, including 3 half-day mock clinic sessions during which participants will interact with 18 simulated patient instructors. In the weeks after live training, several conference calls will be conducted for participants to discuss clinical or procedural issues that arise in their own clinical environments.
Live training will begin with case discussions that emphasize practical application of clinical guidelines to individual patient cases. In the mock clinics, participants will learn how to deliver chronic disease management, comprehensive medication review and transitions of care services. Program faculty will provide feedback based on review of electronic medical record notes and simulated patient instructor assessments. Assessment of clinical decision-making and communication skills (motivational interviewing, patient empowerment, etc) will be included.
- Who Should Attend?
This clinically-oriented training program is intended for pharmacists who are or soon will be practicing
