Pharmacist Education Requirements [from the Meds Check Guidebook]

All Meds Check programs are considered to be in the scope of practice of a pharmacist licensed to practice direct patient care (Part A of the Register, Ontario College of Pharmacists).

The Meds Check for Diabetes requires pharmacist education requirements in addition to being licensed to practice direct patient care.

Pharmacists providing the Meds Check for Diabetes service are required to have adequate knowledge of diabetes education through a professional program approved by a Canadian Council on Continuing Education in Pharmacy (CCCEP) or a Certified Diabetes Educator designation.

Requirements for a Professional Diabetes Program

CCCEP accredits many learning activities for diabetes. Most do not meet the requirements for a professional diabetes program.

To be considered a professional program in diabetes, the program must be:

  1. Include information on both diabetes and on patient education/advising; and
  2. Be at minimum of 12 CEUs (12 hours).
