The profession of pharmacy has moved in a direction that focuses on continuous professional development (CPD) for pharmacists and pharmacy technicians. MPA plays a critical role in CPD and aims to provide continuing education programs that support the continued development of pharmacy professionals and enhance competency.
Educational 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. CPE 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 enforced, so please plan accordingly. CPE Monitor is a national, collaborative effort by the Accreditation Council for Pharmacy Education (ACPE) and the National Association of Boards of Pharmacy (NABP) to provide an electronic system for pharmacists and pharmacy technicians to track their completed CPE credits.
To obtain your e-Profile ID, visit MyCPEMonitor.net. Pharmacists and pharmacy technicians earning continuing education credit at the Convention and meeting all requirements will be able to view a comprehensive list of the ACPE-accredited activities they have taken on their CPE Monitor account.
MPA reserves the right to revoke continuing education credit for individuals who have not paid the registration rate in full or to participants who claim to have attended programs on days for which they were not registered. Partial credit will not be awarded.
