Lab Tests (CPhA)
Pharmacists in some provinces are gaining the regulatory authority to order laboratory tests, one of the key components of comprehensive medication management and chronic disease management. However, there are gaps in pharmacists’ knowledge, skills and confidence to effectively carry out this service. In addition to providing background on overall principles, Lab Tests highlights the main lab results that illustrate the need for, or are affected by drug therapy. Supplemented by case studies, the course is designed as a practical program to quickly bring pharmacists up-to-speed in ordering and monitoring lab results.
