Preparing your Pharmacy to be a Diabetes


Self-Management Education Site (DSME)



Saturday, January 26, 2019

These sessions are open to any pharmacy and their program coordinator pharmacist interested in applying for DSME accreditation through the AADE. 

However, compensation for the actual site application and the pilot program was limited to those who first committed. PPA is still accepting pharmacies on a wait list/stand by. Pharmacies can also go through the program on their own, benefit from the guidance, and pay the application fee directly or at least be ready should a spot in the original group open up.

The session will focus on the fundamental standards needed when applying for accreditation.  During the session participants will engage in discussion-based active learning experiences and exercises where they will engage in applying knowledge and skills to create a framework for a DSME program that can be utilized in their own pharmacy.
