Buffalo HIV program educates pharmacists

The University at Buffalo School of Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences is offering three unique HIV continuing education programs in an online format to help pharmacists all over the world keep their knowledge of HIV pharmacotherapy current.

It has provided training to more than 3,800 individual pharmacists from the U.S., Japan, Zimbabwe, Puerto Rico, the Netherlands and Canada.

UB has also partnered with Walgreen’s drug stores to educate many of its licensed pharmacists in the U.S.

HIV drug maintenance, according to a UB release, is especially challenging due to the number of medications, higher risk of adverse drug-drug interactions and complex patient factors.

UB has created three distinct training programs. Pharmacists can then use their practice setting to determine which program best meets their continuing professional development needs.

Walgreens is the first pharmacy to partner with UB to enroll its pharmacists and has them follow up every year in the annual update program. The federal prison system also has selected employees participate in the practice-based program.
