Program Description

 

APhA Pharmacy-Based Immunization Delivery certificate training program (14th Edition) is an innovative, intensive and practice-based continuing pharmacy education activity, based on national educational standards for immunization training from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. This program is designed to educate pharmacists about the professional opportunities for vaccine advocacy and administration. This practice-based curriculum represents a fusion of science and clinical pharmacy. The program, which emphasizes a healthcare team approach, seeks to foster the implementation of interventions that will promote disease prevention and public health.

 

The purpose of this certificate training program is to prepare pharmacists with comprehensive knowledge, skills and resources necessary to provide immunization services to patients across the life span.

 

The goals of this program are to:

  • Educate pharmacists about: the impact of vaccines on public health, pharmacists’ roles in immunization, immunologic principles of vaccine development and immunizations, vaccine-preventable diseases and the vaccines used to prevent them, strategies for improving immunization rates, and requirements for pharmacists who provide immunization services.
  • Prepare pharmacists to: read an immunization schedule and identify appropriate vaccines for individuals across the life span and with special needs, educate patients about the benefits of vaccines and dispel myths about vaccines, safely administer vaccines to patients via subcutaneous, intramuscular, intranasal and intradermal routes, operate an immunization service in compliance with legal and regulatory standards, and partner with immunization stakeholders to promote immunizations and the immunization neighborhood.
  •  Direct pharmacists to resources necessary to: promote public health through immunizations, access regularly updated information about vaccines and their use, effectively communicate with patients and other stakeholders about resources, and operate an immunization service in compliance with legal and regulatory standards.

Who Should Attend

This program is designed for pharmacists in all practice settings and student pharmacists committed to implementing an immunization service.
