The diagnostics and pharmacogenomics portion of this course will delve into strategies for designing and implementing a successful patient-centered pharmacy-based disease management program and improving patient access to medical care. Upon successful completion of course requirements, students may elect to earn a point-of-care (POC) testing certificate. Pharmacy care in rural and underserved populations, current barriers to care, the advancements made to increase access to care, reimbursement for pharmacy services and future care opportunities for pharmacists will be discussed.
