2024 Consultant Pharmacist Certification: Medication Management for the Older Adult -Live Webinar

**The 8-hour program is for pharmacists only**   

This program will provide 8 hours of CE credit. The Friday portion of the program will be directed to those wanting to receive their initial Consultant Certification from the Alabama Board of Pharmacy. Saturday’s programming will focus on disease states and medications that impact the older adult. Registration for this course includes both Friday and Saturday programming for a total of 8 hours of CE credit. All 8 hours of programming are approved by the Alabama Board of Pharmacy for consultant credit hours as well as ACPE credit hours.

Saturday, July 13 - 8am - 12pm CT via Zoom

This CE program will cover basics related to providing care to older adult patients and the rules and regulations surrounding care of patients in long-term care facilities. Long-term care facilities require a consultant pharmacist to provide pharmaceutical care to patients residing in those facilities. In Alabama, the Board of Pharmacy requires licensure for consultant pharmacists. As a part of this initial licensure, pharmacists must complete an initial course and an accompanying exam for this licensure. This course will cover the basics required by ALBOP. After successful completion of the accompanying exam, pharmacist attendees will be eligible to apply for a consultant license from ALBOP.

Target Audience

This application-based program is intended for pharmacists and will provide 8 hours of continuing education over two days.  This program has been approved by the Alabama Board of Pharmacy as a prerequisite course to apply for consultant pharmacist certification with the ALBOP.
