CDE Pharmacist Roles

Pharmacists will no longer need to complete a Medication Management Review process before becoming a Credentialled Diabetes Educator (CDE), following ratificaton by the Australian Diabetes Educators Association board last week, when the Pharmacy Guild of Australia and the Pharmaceutical Society of Australia (PSA) gave a joint presentation.

PSA national president Grant Kardachi and Guild national president George Tambassis said in a joint statement that the collaboration had a pleasing outcome enhancing accessibility for consumers to diabetes educators.

Pharmacists will still need to undertake an accredited post graduate certificate in diabetes education and management course to work in this area.
