Due to demand, OPA has scheduled another session of APhA’s Delivering Medication Therapy Management Services certificate training program (3rd Edition), which presents a systematic approach for developing, implementing, delivering, and sustaining MTM services. It includes an overview of the marketplace for delivering MTM services, guidance for implementing MTM services in pharmacy practice, a review of the essential skills and knowledge needed for performing MTM successfully, and an organized process for identifying medication-related problems. The purpose of this certificate training program is to prepare pharmacists to improve medication use through the delivery of MTM services in a variety of practice settings.

Current OPA members have preferred and discounted registration for this program. Non-member registration will begin next week.

Please note:  The MTM certificate training program being held on September 22, 2016 is the last training session being offered in 2016.
