Delivering Medication Therapy Management Services

Delivering Medication Therapy Management Services is an innovative and interactive training program that explores the pharmacist’s role in providing MTM services to patients. Pharmacists have a tremendous opportunity to receive reimbursement for monitoring and improving medication use in patients with complex medication regimens. This practice-based activity teaches pharmacists the essential skills necessary to become a successful MTM practitioner. The training program will enhance pharmacists’ clinical expertise in evaluating complicated medication regimens, identifying medication-related problems, and making recommendations to patients, caregivers, and health care professionals. This ACPE activity does not provide a certification in this topic but rather advanced professional training.

The goals of the training program are to:

  • Advance public health and patient care through improved medication use.
  • Provide training to enhance pharmacists’ ability to effectively provide MTM services.
  • Motivate increased numbers of pharmacists to establish MTM services.
  • Communicate benchmark practices for providing MTM services.
  • Acknowledgements and Disclosures.

There are three components to the program:

  • 10 hours (1.0 CEU) self-study learning component
  • 8 contact hours (0.8 CEU) live training seminar
  • 3 hours (0.3 CEU) post-seminar exercise

The University at Buffalo School of Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences Office of Continuing Pharmacy Education traditionally offers this program in August.
