PURPOSE:
Anticoagulation Management Certificate Program for Pharmacists is designed for pharmacists caring for adults with, or at risk of, thrombotic disorders in ambulatory care settings.


TARGET AUDIENCE:

The primary goals of this certificate program are to prepare pharmacists to 1.) provide a high level of patient-centered care to adult patients with, or at risk of, thrombotic disorders; 2.) create pharmacist advocates for appropriate care and treatment of persons receiving anticoagulant therapy in ambulatory settings; and 3.) positively impact the way pharmacists perceive their role in the care and treatment of persons receiving anticoagulant therapy. Additionally, the nurturing of a growing cadre of advanced-trained pharmacists can have a dramatic impact on the care and treatment of all patients.

This certificate program provides 21 hours (2.1 CEUs) of continuing pharmaceutical education. This is comprised of a 15-hour (1.5 CEUs) home-study and a 6-hour (0.6 CEUs) on-site workshop
