ALEXANDRIA, Va. — The National Community Pharmacists Association has renewed two of its pharmacy niche programs.
NCPA said it once again will host diabetes management and long-term care workshops. The Diabetes Accreditation Standards-Practical Applications program, which provides community pharmacists with a path to expand their role into diabetes self-management education/training, will be offered April 27 to 29 in Rochester, N.Y., and Oct. 11 to 12 in San Diego. Meanwhile, the Long-Term Care Business Fundamentals, which is designed to teach pharmacists how to efficiently and profitably provide long-term care services to residents in an growing number of settings — including adult day care centers, assisted living facilities, group homes, continuing care retirement communities, hospice, nursing homes, and skilled nursing facilities — will be offered April 20 to 22 and August 10 to 12 in Richmond, Va., and Oct. 11 to 12 in San Diego.
Registration for both programs now is available at Ncpanet.org/index.php/events or by calling 1-800-544-7447.
“With today’s rapidly aging population and a startling rise in the rate of diabetes, these two niche programs provide pharmacists with the tools necessary to diversify their business models and build profitable, successful niches in two growing areas of pharmacy care,” NCPA president Lonny Wilson said.
