APhA’s Pharmacy-Based Cardiovascular Disease Risk Management is an innovative and interactive certificate training program that explores the pharmacist’s role in cardiovascular disease risk management. This practice-based activity is the first step for pharmacists interested in learning the essential skills to successfully assess risk, promote cardiovascular disease prevention, and encourage patient adherence to therapy.


The goals of this program are to: 

  • Educate pharmacists on current evidence-based treatment goals and clinical management recommendations for dyslipidemia and hypertension.
  • Familiarize pharmacists with important concepts related to healthful lifestyle changes that focus on cardiovascular disease prevention.
  • Introduce techniques and skills for encouraging patient adherence to prescribed therapies.
  • Ensure pharmacist proficiency in blood pressure measurement technique and point-of-care lipid testing.
  • Enhance pharmacist experience in applying elements of motivational interviewing with respect to medication adherence and lifestyle modifications.

APhA’s Pharmacy-Based Cardiovascular Disease Risk Management certificate training program has two components: web-based interactive self-study with assessment and the live seminar with online final assessment. A Certificate of Achievement will be awarded to participants who successfully complete all program components, including an evaluation.

Live Training Seminar will focus on these core areas: 

  • A case-based approach to cardiovascular disease risk assessment and treatment decisions, managing special situations, treating hypertension in a patient with diabetes, and lifestyle modifications and motivational interviewing.
  • Skills assessments on blood pressure measurement technique and motivational interviewing. Participants will be conducting blood pressure assessments on other participants.
  • A discussion regarding the role of the pharmacist and existing business models for cardiovascular disease risk management services.
