IPA Goes Local: Dubuque Area Pharmacy Association

Date(s): March 27, 2018

Time: 6:00 PM  CST - 8:00 PM  CST

IPA Goes Local is a partnership between IPA and Iowa’s regional pharmacy associations to bring a live CPE program to locations across the state and see what our members are doing on a local level.

IPA Goes Local 2018: Understanding Mental Health Care Access in Iowa
Despite a high prevalence of mental health and substance use issues, Iowa is the 3rd lowest state in overall mental health care rankings for adults. Iowa ranks particularly low in access to care, mental health workforce availability, patients that did not receive treatment, and patients with unmet needs.
For the 2018 IPA Goes Local program, IPA is partnering with the Iowa Behavioral Health Association (IBHA) to present a team-based approach to caring for patients with mental health conditions through education, prevention, treatment, and advocacy. Attendees will then discuss local strategies and ways to collaborate to improve mental health care in Iowa.
Mental Health First Aid Courses
In conjunction with each Goes Local event, IPA will also hold Mental Health First Aid courses. These 8-hour courses teach you how to help someone who may be experiencing a mental health or substance use challenge. The training helps you identify, understand and respond to signs of addictions and mental illnesses.

Watch communications from IPA and your local pharmacy association for times, dates, locations and registration. 

Mental Health First Aid Training - Dubuque

Date(s): March 27, 2018

Time: 8:00 AM  CST - 5:00 PM  CST

This 8-hour course teaches you a five-step action plan to help someone who may be experiencing a mental health or substance use challenge. Similar to traditional physical First Aid and CPR, Mental Health First Aid is help provided to a person developing a mental health problem or experiencing a crisis until professional treatment is obtained or the crisis resolves.

This training is not accredited for CPE. All trainings hosted by IPA are open to pharmacists, pharmacy technicians, and student pharmacists! Each training event will be limited to the first 25 registered attendees. 

If you would like to lunch onsite, be sure to add the lunch option to your registration. The menus below will be available at the training, along with the order form, but you will need to pay with your registration. Otherwise, you are free to eat off-site.
