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 are implementing a product called Lecture Panda that will allow participants to easily complete program evaluations and posttests online, as well as obtain program handouts.
To earn pharmacy continuing education credit, complete the following steps.
Register with Lecture Panda – Prior to the event, you should register on the Lecture Panda website 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 http://www.michiganpharmacists.org/eventscalendar/nmpe2018 and click on the Lecture Panda link under the black “Continuing Education Credit and Handouts” navigation bar, 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.
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; however, you may go to the hotel’s business center to make copies for a fee. 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 available for reference onsite.
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.
Overall Event Evaluation – MPA would like to know about your overall experience while attending the Convention. 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 April 23, 2018. Evaluations and posttests will not be available for completion and requests to process credit will not be accepted after this date. 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.
