Intended Audience

This event was designed specifically for health-system pharmacists, residents, pharmacy technicians and student pharmacists.

PCE Credit Statement

These activities are structured to meet knowledge- and application-based educational needs. A knowledge-based activity acquires factual knowledge. An application-based activity applies to information learned in the timeframe allotted. Information in knowledge- and application-type activities is based on evidence as accepted in the literature by the healthcare professions.

These activities are accredited through the Accreditation Council for Pharmacy Education (ACPE) for pharmacist and pharmacy technician continuing education credit. Pharmacy continuing education (PCE) credit will be earned based on participation in individually accredited activities. Attendance and participation are required before obtaining PCE credit. 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 enforces, so please plan accordingly.

Participants will be required to complete evaluations and posttest questions, if received by presenters, online at www.MichiganPharmacists.org/education/liveposttests by Nov. 10, 2017. Participants must pass each posttest with a score of 70 percent or greater. 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. Posttests will not be graded and credit will not be processed until the online evaluation and posttest has officially closed for response on Nov. 10. Please allow MPA two weeks to grade posttests, process and upload credit to CPE Monitor after the posttest has closed. 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 pharmacists and pharmacy technicians complete the online evaluation and posttest by Nov. 10 to allow sufficient time for processing. If all requirements are met, participants will receive PCE credit through CPE Monitor, a national, collaborative effort by ACPE and the National Association of Boards of Pharmacy (NABP) to provide an electronic system for pharmacists and pharmacy technicians to track their completed PCE credits. MPA, as an ACPE-accredited provider, is required to report pharmacist and pharmacy technician PCE credit using this tracking system. Pharmacist and pharmacy technician participants must provide their NABP e-Profile identification number and date of birth (in MMDD format) when they register for a CPE activity or complete activity evaluations. It will be the responsibility of the participant to provide the correct information (i.e., e-Profile identification number and date of birth in MMDD format). If this information is not correctly provided, NABP and ACPE prohibit MPA from issuing CPE credit.

Initial Release Date: 10/27/17; Expiration Date: 10/27/20

Michigan Pharmacists Association is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Pharmacy Education (ACPE) as a provider of continuing pharmacy education.
