Community Pharmacy Diabetes Medication Therapy Adherence Clinic (CP - DMTAC)

The Malaysian Academy of Pharmacy (MAP) in collaboration with the Malaysian Pharmaceutical Society (MPS) and the Pharmaceutical Services Programme of the MInistry of Health will be organising a Community Pharmacist Training Program based on the model established by the Ministry of Health Diabetes Medication Therapy Adherence Clinic (DMTAC).

The training programme is aimed at supporting and improving health service delivery within all pharmacy practice settings, particularly in the community pharmacy sector, by enhancing pharmacists' health literacy and building their capacity to improve health outcomes for people living with diabetes. In addition, this training will enable pharmacists to deliver consistent, relevant and actionable support, and have a supportive and helpful consultation with people living with diabetes mellitus.

The training program is divided into 5 parts – Online Module, Lectures, Case-Based Discussion, Clinical Attachment and Assessment. Participants will be attached at selected hospitals throughout the country.

The Certificate of Completion will be awarded to those who have completed all five parts, where a pass in the Assessment is mandatory. No certificate will be given for completing just one part of the program, except Part 1 (Online Module).

The first part of the training involves self-learning by the participant using the online module, published in the MAP website. This module (Part 1) will cover the pathophysiological basis of diabetes mellitus with the latest update on pharmacotherapy. This must be completed before moving on to the next part.

Part 2 is an online workshop focusing on interactive lectures. Part 3 covers interactive discussion and presentation of simulation cases by the experts using virtual platforms. Both Part 2 and 3 will be conducted over two consecutive half days.

Part 4 of the training consists of attachment at a Ministry of Health's Health Clinic in teams of 2 pharmacists. The venue and dates of attachment will be arranged with the participants during the course of the training.
