PCE CREDIT STATEMENT

This activity is structured to meet knowledge-based educational needs. A knowledge-based activity acquires factual knowledge. Information in knowledge-based activities is based on evidence as accepted in the literature by the healthcare professions. Pharmacy continuing education (PCE) credit will be earned based on participation in this activity. Any individual who is more than 10 minutes late to an activity or leaves an activity early will not be granted PCE credit. This procedure will be strictly enforced, so please plan accordingly. Participants must complete an online activity evaluation by Oct. 8, 2018. Credit will not be processed until the online evaluation has officially closed for response on Oct. 8, 2018. Please allow MPA two weeks to process and upload credit to CPE Monitor. NOTE: ACPE guidelines prohibit MPA from issuing credit more than 60 days after the activity for any reason; therefore, to avoid denial of credit, it is imperative that participants complete the online evaluation and posttest by the deadline indicated to allow sufficient time for processing. If all requirements are met, participants will receive pharmacy continuing education (PCE) credit through CPE Monitor. It will be the responsibility of the participant to provide the correct information. If this information is not correctly provided, NABP and ACPE prohibit MPA from issuing CPE credit.

Continuing Education Credit and Handouts

NEW PROCESS TO CLAIM CONTINUING EDUCATION CREDIT

MPA is committed to improving the process in which participants claim credit earned, including completion of program evaluations and posttests. We have implemented a product called Lecture Panda that will allow participants to easily complete program evaluations and posttests online, as well as obtain program handouts.

 

Instructions

To earn pharmacy continuing education credit, complete the following steps.

 

  1. Register with Lecture Panda – Prior to the event, you should register on the Lecture Panda website for this event by providing your name, e-mail address, NABP E-profile identification number (aka CPE Monitor number) and date of birth (MMDD format). To do so, go to https://www.lecturepanda.com/embed/lecture?lectkey=ag1zfnJ4Y2V0cmFja2VycicLEgZDRVVzZXIYgICAsLaLigoMCxIHTGVjdHVyZRiAgIDAkKSICgw, or scan the below QR code with your cell phone or tablet to be directed to the event page on the Lecture Panda website. Upon registering on Lecture Panda, you will receive an e-mail confirming registration with a link to complete credit requirements. This link allows you access to all program handouts, evaluations and posttests. To avoid e-mails going to your spam folder, be sure to set up your e-mail account to allow e-mails from Lecture Panda.

     

     

  2. Access Handouts – To access program handouts, refer to the registration confirmation e-mail that you received from Lecture Panda and click on the blue button titled “Complete Credit Requirements.” You will be directed to all program handouts where you can conveniently pull them up on your PC, cell phone or tablet, or you can print them if you wish to have hard copies. Please note hard copies of handouts will not be provided onsite. Additionally, if you would like to have all posttest questions with you while at attending programs, be sure to print the handout named “posttest booklet” as it contains all applicable posttest questions. Posttest questions will not be provided for reference onsite.

  3. Claim Credit – To complete all evaluations and posttests for programs that you attended and claim credit, refer to the registration confirmation e-mail that you received from Lecture Panda and click on the blue button titled “Complete Credit Requirements.” You will be directed to confirm your name, e-mail address, NABP E-profile identification number and date of birth, then progress to the claim credit screens where you will enter the program claim code provided at the end of each program and complete evaluations and posttests. More information about program claim codes is below. Upon completion of the evaluations and posttests, credit will automatically be submitted to your CPE Monitor record. You must pass each posttest with a score of 70 percent or greater to earn credit.

  4. Overall Event Evaluation – MPA would like to know about your overall experience while attending this event. Please be sure to complete the overall event evaluation on Lecture Panda in addition to program evaluations. Your feedback is used to improve the Convention and other MPA events.

 

Program Claim Codes

When completing claiming credit in Lecture Panda, you will be required to enter a “claim code” unique to each program. Be sure to pay attention at the end of each program to receive that program’s claim code. Program claim codes will not be provided to participants after participants are released from the program. It is recommended that you keep track of program claim codes by recording them as they are provided during sessions.

 

Posttest questions are not applicable to application-based programs; however, evaluations must be completed. For knowledge-based programs in which presenters did not submit posttest questions, attendees will not be penalized. MPA, as an ACPE-accredited provider, is required to report pharmacist and pharmacy technician PCE credit to CPE Monitor. ACPE guidelines prohibit MPA from issuing credit 60 days or more after the activity for any reason. Therefore, to avoid denial of credit, it is imperative that pharmacists and pharmacy technicians complete the online evaluations and posttests before Oct. 8, 2018. You will receive periodic e-mails from Lecture Panda reminding you to complete requirements. Due to this new process, participants will not receive an attendance form to record programs attended.
