Opportunities to Earn Pain, Law and Live CE Credits
posted: 05/26/2010

MPA is offering a number of opportunities in the coming months, as well as online home study programs, that assist pharmacists and certified pharmacy technicians in meeting their live pain and law continuing education requirements.

Pharmacists are required to earn 10 hours of live CE credit and one hour of pain credit, both requirements inclusive of the 30 hours normally earned. Certified pharmacy technicians must obtain one hour of pharmacy law continuing education credit every two years.

Michigan pharmacists are not required to obtain pharmacy law continuing education credit, and pharmacy technicians are not required to meet the pain and live continuing education credit requirements.

MPA offers two home study opportunities that meet pharmacist pain requirements: Headache Treatment in the New Millennium and Pain Management Update. Alternatively, technician law CE requirements can be met through the following home studies: Code of Federal Regulations Review 2009, Pharmacy Advocacy and How a Bill Becomes a Law (under the Legislative Process tab). These home studies can be found online at MichiganPharmacists.org/education/online.

The following live programs also assist pharmacists and pharmacy technicians in meeting various requirements. Please contact the person indicated for additional information.
