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