  • Developing Skills for Diabetes Care
    Developing Skills for Diabetes Care has been designed to allow participants the opportunity to extend their practice by developing a knowledge of the principles and learning theories to manage the patient with diabetes. Preparing participants for pharmacy credentialing exams, and the Certified Diabetes Educator (CDE) examination, it is expected that upon the completion of this program participants will have the knowledge, skills, and behaviors to effectively care for the patient with diabetes.
  • Shaping Your Pharmacy Future
    Where is your practice today and more importantly, where will it be tomorrow?  There have been many changes in health-care over the last several years and many more are sure to come.  All of which are making pharmacy a more competitive business than ever.  How is your practice stacking up?  Are you maximizing your business’ opportunities?  How does your practice stand up against industry benchmarks?  Where will your practice be ten years from now? Based on Shaping the Future, the successful ten-year strategic leadership program offered to Iowa CEO’s and most recently, veterinarians, Shaping Your Pharmacy Future is a strategic leadership development program series designed to put you back in control of your practice.  It is designed to bring business and pharmacy experts together to help you fine-tune your business practice and ensure its vitality into the future.
