Continuing Education Credit and Handouts

PROCESS TO CLAIM CONTINUING EDUCATION CREDIT FOR PAID REGISTRANTS

Individuals who claim credit and didn't pay for the event will be liable for the registration fee.

 

Instructions

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

 

  1.  Register with Lecture Panda – If you did not register on the Lecture Panda website prior to this event by providing your name, e-mail address, NABP E-profile identification number (aka CPE Monitor number) and date of birth (MMDD format), you can do so by clicking here, 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.


 

  1. 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.
  2. Claim Credit – To complete the evaluation and posttests, 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 the program and complete the evaluation and posttests. More information about program claim codes is below. Upon completion of the evaluation and posttests, credit will automatically be submitted to your CPE Monitor record. You must pass the posttest with a score of 70 percent or greater to earn credit.

 

Program Claim Codes

When completing claiming credit in Lecture Panda, you will be required to enter a “claim code” unique to the program. Be sure to pay attention at the end of the program to receive the program claim code. The program claim code will not be provided to participants after the webinar has officially concluded. It is recommended that you keep track of the program claim code by recording it as it is provided during the session.

 

For knowledge-based programs in which the presenter 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 participants complete the online evaluations and posttests before Dec. 27, 2019. The evaluation 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.

PCE Credit Statement

This activity is structured to meet knowledge--based educational needs. A knowledge-based activity acquires factual knowledge and is accredited through the Accreditation Council for Pharmacy Education (ACPE) for pharmacist 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 enforced, so please plan accordingly. Participants will be required to complete evaluations and posttest questions, if received by presenters, online through Lecture Panda by Dec. 27, 2019. Participants must pass each posttest with a score of 70 percent or greater. For knowledge-based programs in which presenters did not submit posttest questions, attendees will not be penalized. 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 attendees complete the online evaluations and posttests by the established deadline. 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 PCE credit using this tracking system. 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.
