MedsChecks and Diabetes MedsChecks: A guide for pharmacists

Date: 28 August 2018

Pharmacists have been able to conduct medication management services under the 6th Community Pharmacy Agreement CPA MedsCheck and Diabetes MedsCheck programs since 2015.1

However, there are a number of pharmacists, especially new graduates, who may not be familiar with the program.

Community pharmacists’ scope of practice increasingly includes the provision of services such as MedsChecks and it is vital that education is provided to ensure they are delivered at a high standard across the profession.  

Guild Learning and Development has announced the launch of a new online course titled MedsChecks and Diabetes MedsChecks: A guide for pharmacists.

This course provides practical advice for pharmacists on the process of conducting a MedsCheck service, identifying and recruiting patients, and answers frequently asked questions regarding eligibility.  It is ideal for pharmacists new to the service, or those wanting to refresh their knowledge.

Upon completing this course, pharmacists should be able to confidently conduct MedsCheck and Diabetes MedsCheck services within their pharmacy.

This activity has been accredited for 1 hour of Group 1 CPD (or 1 CPD credit), suitable for inclusion in an individual pharmacist’s CPD plan, which can be converted to 1 hour of Group 2 CPD (or 2 CPD credits) upon successful completion of relevant assessment activities.

To enrol in this course please visit www.myCPD.org.au
