The North Carolina Association of Pharmacists is excited to announce the NASPA Pharmacy-Based Point-of-Care Test & Treat National Certificate Program.

Point-of-care testing empowers clinicians to use effective, fast technology to aid their decision-making at the “point-of-care” to improve patient health. Pharmacy-based point-of-care testing utilizes CLIA-waived (Clinical Laboratory Improvement Amendments -waived) tests that offer near-immediate results in non-laboratory settings.  Pharmacists and pharmacies are increasingly offering this public health service to promote prevention, early detection, and disease management.

The NASPA Pharmacy-based Point-of-Care Test & Treat National Certificate Program provides an opportunity to gain the skills and information necessary to develop a testing program for influenza, Group A Streptococcus, HIV, Hepatitis C, and coronaviruses. The target audience for the certificate program is pharmacists, pharmacy technicians, student pharmacists, schools and colleges of pharmacy, and pharmacy association staff. While the program is primarily designed for pharmacists, non-pharmacists interested in point-of-care testing are also welcome to complete the program.

The 20-hour ACPE-accredited certificate program includes comprehensive material regarding key disease states, physical assessment, point-of-care tests, collaborative practice models, and business models. The complete course will consist of 16 hours of self-study and a 4-hour live component to be hosted on November 15th, 2022. Please note all self-study modules must be completed before the live training on November 15th.

Registrants take an online assessment after each of the 12 modules of home study, in addition to a cumulative assessment (must pass 70% within three attempts), and then their proficiency to conduct physical assessments and offer point-of-care testing services is assessed in the live 4-hour training. Upon successfully completing both portions of the program and all program evaluations, participants are awarded a certificate of completion and can receive 20 hours of Continuing Pharmacy Education (CPE) credit.

To get started, simply click the "Register Here" button in the upper-right corner. This will take you directly to NASPA's registration page. Upon successful registration, you will be sent a link to access the online training platform, Lecture Panda, which provides course materials, including self-study readings, and an evaluation before the live/virtual portion of the course, to be hosted on November 15th. For NCAP members, click on the link provided to get your discount code and receive $200 off the registration cost.
