Pharmacist Service Expansion Project

The Missouri Pharmacy Association (MPA) is excited to continue the Pharmacist Service Expansion (PSE) grant project awarded to MPA by the Department of Health and Senior Services (DHSS), in conjunction with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). The second contract year of the new PSE project runs from June 30, 2019, through June 29, 2020. 

Funding for Diabetes Self-Management Education and Support (DSMES) Site Accreditation

The PSE Project allows pharmacies to apply for grant funding to cover DSMES site accreditation (or reaccreditation, if applicable) including funding which reimburses for operations and administrative support to achieve site accreditation. Participants pay the accreditation process and support costs upfront. Once your grant application is accepted, and all requirements are complete, you receive reimbursement.

The PSE DSMES Project goal is to: 1) Increase the number of Missouri pharmacies with DSMES site accredited programs and, 2) Increase the proportion of people with diabetes who have at least one encounter at an accredited DSMES pharmacy education program site.
