OPA’s MASTER Plan for Diabetes

The Ontario Pharmacists Association’s new online professional development program MASTER Plan for Diabetes is taught by experts in diabetes care and puts a strong emphasis on best practices in providing education for the self-management of diabetes.

A variety of topics are covered, including: motivational interviewing, pharmacological management of diabetes, self-monitoring of blood glucose, complications, managing special circumstances, nutrition, and exercise. 

 
Program participants will have access to an interactive tool that includes documentation forms for MedsCheck for Diabetes and MedsCheck for Diabetes Follow-Up, checklists for effective interactions with patients, reference resources for healthcare professionals, and resources that can be provided to diabetes patients.
 
This program is supported in part by an unrestricted educational grant from Merck Canada and LifeScan, Inc.
