The Academy of Independent Pharmacy (AIP) of the Georgia Pharmacy Association will reimburse up to 50 of its pharmacist members for completing a Diabetes Review Course as well as successful completion of the Certified Disease Manager (CDM) in Diabetes examination. After these pharmacists become CDMs in diabetes, AIP will compensate them for providing direct patient care for 2 patients. The AIP has committed to increasing the number of CDMs in diabetes in Georgia in order to create a network of pharmacist providers who are financially compensated to care for diabetic patients.
Pharmacists who pass the exam earn the National Institute for Standards in Pharmacist Credentialing's (NISPC) nationally recognized CDM credential and are listed on both the NISPC and the National Association of Boards of Pharmacy Web sites. Pharmacists may apply for the exam at the NISPC Web site at www.nispcnet.org, or they may call 404-788-5883.
