The Ontario Pharmacists’ Association’s Diabetes Patient Care - Level 1 Certificate Program

The Diabetes Patient Care Level 1 Certificate Program offered by the Drug Information and Research Centre (DIRC) at the Ontario Pharmacists’ Association is designed to support pharmacists in caring for patients with diabetes and to help prepare those pharmacists interested in earning their certified diabetes educator (CDE) designation.

This three-day live program, taught by clinical experts in diabetes care, gives pharmacists an overview of the scope of diabetes and its impact on health care. Delegates also receive information about the pathophysiology, screening and diagnosis of type 1 and type 2 diabetes (including pre-diabetes), nutrition, macro- and microvascular complications, pharmacologic and non-pharmacologic management options, exercise and rehabilitation, and diabetes in special populations. There is also an in-depth review of medical devices such as insulin pens, pumps and meters, followed by a hands-on practical workshop where participants can apply the information learned during the didactic sessions.
