Continuing Pharmacy Education Requirements This activity is structured to meet knowledge-based educational needs and acquires factual knowledge. Information in knowledge-type activities is based on evidence as accepted in the literature by the health care professions. Continuing pharmacy education (CPE) credit will be earned based on participation in this activity. Attendance and participation are required before obtaining CPE credit. Any individual who is more than 10 minutes late to an activity or leaves an activity early will not be granted CPE credit. This procedure will be strictly enforced, so please plan accordingly. Participants must complete an activity evaluation and posttest with a passing score of 70 percent or greater.
This activity is accredited through ACPE for pharmacist and pharmacy technician continuing pharmacy education credit. Even though IPhA may accredit an activity for technicians, it is the technicians responsibility to determine whether the subject matter is acceptable to the Pharmacy Technician Certification Board (PTCB) for recertification.
If all requirements are met, participants will receive continuing pharmacy education credit in the following manner. Partial credit will not be awarded. Please allow 60 days for processing.
Pharmacists and Pharmacy Technicians CPE Monitor, a national, collaborative effort by ACPE and the National Association of Boards of Pharmacy (NABP) to provide an electronic system for pharmacists to track their completed CPE credits, went into effect on 01/01/2013. IPhA, as an ACPE-accredited provider, is required to report pharmacist CPE credit using this new tracking system. Pharmacist and Pharmacy Technician participants must provide their NABP e-Profile identification number and date of birth (in MMDD format) when they register for a CPE activity or complete activity evaluations. It will be the responsibility of the pharmacist and pharmacy technician to provide the correct information (i.e., e-Profile identification number and date of birth in MMDD format. If this information is not provided, NABP and ACPE prohibit IPhA from issuing CPE credit. Online access to their inventory of completed credits will allow pharmacists to easily monitor their compliance with CPE requirements and print statements of credit. Therefore, IPhA will not provide printed statements of credit to pharmacists.
