Continuing Education

 

Select educational programs delivered during Pharmacy Education 2022 are eligible for continuing pharmacy education credit. Meeting attendees will have up to 45 days following Pharmacy Education 2022 to complete the required components for the accredited continuing education activities. The deadline to complete the accredited CE activity evaluations and assessments for continuing education credit is Saturday, September 10, at 11:59 p.m. ET. 

Which sessions can I receive CE credit for attending?

All accredited continuing education sessions are marked as such with a universal activity number (UAN), activity type, and the number of contact hours (CEUs) in the program schedule.

ACPEThe American Association of Colleges of Pharmacy is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Pharmacy Education as a provider of continuing pharmacy education. 
 

How do I request CE credit for the sessions I attended?

CPE credits are administered via the online AACP CE Administration platform, Learning Express CE (LECE). Meeting registrants must attend the accredited continuing education activities and complete the CE post-assessment and activity evaluation on the LECE platform. A passing score of 75% is required to obtain CPE credit.

CPE credit information will be electronically transmitted to CPE Monitor upon successful completion of the CE post-assessment and evaluation.  Pharmacists should log in to their NABP e-profile to access information about their completed CPE and to print a valid statement of credit if needed.

Note, it is imperative that pharmacist attendee’s NABP e-Profile ID and birthdate (in MM/DD format) are correctly entered into their LECE profile and correspond with their NABP record. Failure to ensure this information is identical in both programs will jeopardize their earning CPE credits.
 

If you have questions regarding CE before or after Pharmacy Education 2022, please contact Dorothy Novilus, Associate Director of Continuing Professional Development, at 703-739-2330 ext. 1027.

Why do I need a CE session code?

AACP utilizes standard procedures for providing evidence of participation in accredited continuing education activities. Prior to completing the CE session evaluation, participants will be asked to enter an “Access Code” to ensure they have attended sessions approved for continuing education credits. Presenters will provide the Access Code at the conclusion of their presentations.

Educational Sessions

How do I obtain copies of the presentations?

Educational presentations that are submitted to AACP will be available on the AACP Community site/mobile app at the end of June.

Will any of the sessions be recorded during Pharmacy Education 2022?

Attendance at, or participation in, these sessions constitutes an agreement by the attendee to the capturing of their image, likeness, and/or voice, as well as the use and/or distribution of the video recordings and electronic reproductions which may contain the attendee’s image, likeness and/or voice.
