The C.A.R.E.S. continuing education program is designed for Alabama pharmacists and pharmacy technicians to provide an overview of Medicare and the roles of the Aging and Disability Resource Centers (ADRCs) with the primary goal to help pharmacists and pharmacy staff effectively and efficiently assist Medicare beneficiaries. This program, funded by Alabama Department of Senior Services (ADSS), will be made available to community pharmacists in Alabama at no cost. The program is taught by Dr. Salisa Westrick, Associate Professor of Health Outcomes Research and Policy and managed by the Harrison School of Pharmacy, Auburn University.
After completion of the CE program, participants will receive certificates from Alabama Department of Senior Services (ADSS) to signify that they are Certified Aging Resource Educated Specialists (C.A.R.E.S.).
This online program is convenient to busy health care providers like pharmacists, as they can complete it at their own pace.
