PCacpe-logoMA is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Pharmacy Education (ACPE) as a provider of continuing pharmacy education (CPE).

Stay tuned for more information about CPE-eligible sessions at the sPCMA Business Forum. Sessions eligible for CPE credit will be designated with the “CPE” icon in the session schedule.

Obtaining Continuing Pharmacist Education Credit

As of January 1, 2013 a system called the CPE Monitor, a joint collaboration between ACPE and NABP, became mandatory for all CPE providers and pharmacists to submit and receive CPE credit. The CPE Monitor allows providers to submit attendee lists online. The system communicates CPE participation to NABP, which then communicates it to state boards of pharmacy electronically, removing the need for pharmacists to submit individual statements of credit.

In order to receive credit for attending accredited CPE offerings, you must have an e-profile ID number (e-PID) provided by NABP. If you have not yet obtained your NAPB e-PID, please do so by visiting the NABP E-Profile website. Questions about this system or your number should be directed to NABP customer service at 847.391.4406.

At the conference: In order to obtain CEUs, please have your name badge scanned in each breakout session that you attend. A representative will be present in the back of each room to scan badges and answer any questions. Further questions can be directed to Kristen Pumphrey at kpumphrey@pcmanet.org.

All credit will be uploaded within 30 days of the conference. Credit should appear in your NABP account within a week from upload.

After the conference: Be on the lookout for post-conference communications from PCMA. Depending on the session(s) you attend, it might be necessary for you to complete a learning assessment or evaluation before receiving credit.
