    APhA’s Pharmacy-Based Immunization Delivery: A Certificate Training Program for Pharmacists

    Friday, September 8, 2017
    7:00am-6:30pm

    This program was developed by the American Pharmacists Association (APhA).

    Only 20 pharmacists will be allowed to participate in this year’s training so register soon!

    The Pharmacy-Based Immunization Delivery certificate training program (14th Edition) is an innovative, intensive, and practice-based continuing pharmacy education, based on national educational standards for immunization training from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). This program is designed to educate pharmacists about the professional opportunities for vaccine advocacy and administration. This practice-based curriculum represents a fusion of science and clinical pharmacy. The program, which emphasizes a health care team approach, seeks to foster the implementation of interventions that will promote disease prevention and public health. This program is conducted in two parts:

    • Part One - An online self-study learning component.This component is made up of 5 modules with pre-tests, reinforcement exercises to practice what you have learned, and a self-study assessment. Very Important: Follow the instructions that will be emailed to you in order to access the on-line APhA course materials and complete the self-study component. The on-line self-study program and assessment are required to be completed prior to attending. (Please note that the Pre-Assessment (15 questions) though required, does not have a “passing” grade. This Pre-Exam is NOT the self-study exam which is completed after the self-study modules.)
    • Part Two - Live Seminar.The training seminar reinforces and expands on the self-study program, addressing areas such as applying ACIP immunization schedules, communicating with patients, and injection-technique training. Speakers for the seminar will include faculty knowledgeable about vaccine preventable diseases, immunizations, and their administration. Participants will be expected to participate in case studies, and practice giving intramuscular and subcutaneous injections. Once you have successfully passed your injection technique assessment, you will be given directions to complete your final assessment, claim your credit, & to print your certificate of achievement. –This can be completed once you have returned home, but within a deadline that will be provided at the conclusion of the seminar.
