Michigan Pharmacists Association (MPA) invites you to submit a proposal to present a pharmacy continuing education program at an upcoming MPA event. All
program submissions must have a patient-focused care component and be designed for pharmacists and/or pharmacy technicians. To promote interaction
between the presenter and participant, we encourage programs that contain at least one of the following: question and answer segment, open forum,
illustration and/or physical interaction.
We are accepting proposals for topics that focus on patient counseling and/or specific disease states, including but not limited to, patient safety, medication
therapy management, provider status, innovative practices, value-based healthcare models, immunization update, opioid abuse, obesity/weight management,
Drug Enforcement Administration update, medication safety, over-the-counter, antibiotic resistance, interdisciplinary collaborative care, transgender care,
cardiovascular, diabetes, asthma, new drugs, law and regulatory issues, pain management and leadership, such as healthcare literacy, effective
communication, developing interdisciplinary teams, precepting students, developing residents and motivational interviewing.
Please type as you would like information to appear in promotional material.
Select the audience and practice setting that your program would best benefit.
MPA provides live programming opportunities throughout the year, including face-to-face networking events and webinars.

Contact Information for Person Filling out the Form
MPA will attempt to accredit all continuing education programs for both pharmacists and pharmacy technicians. Programs that
benefit pharmacists and pharmacy technicians must have specific and separate learning objectives for each. Programs felt to be
appropriate for technicians pertain to the following topics: medication distribution and inventory control systems, pharmacy
administration and management calculations, programs specific to pharmacy technicians, interpersonal skills, organizational
skills, pharmacy law and pharmacology/drug therapy. If your presentation benefits only pharmacists, only pharmacy technicians
or both, please complete the appropriate learning objective section below.
Please indicate the activity type category that you will incorporate in your program that will allow pharmacists and technicians to
assess their achievement of the learned content. You are encouraged to structure your learning assessment and provide appropriate
feedback to allow participants the opportunity to assess their achievement of the learned content. Completion of a learning
assessment is required for participants to receive continuing education credit.
Activities should provide fair, full disclosure and equitable balance. Programs shall not be an advertisement for a particular
product or service. It shall be a nonbiased, in-depth presentation relating to the contemporary practice of pharmacy. Generic
names of all products should be used. A list of brand names may be included as long as all drugs in that class are indicated.
Honorarium and reimbursement will be negotiated on an individual basis.
MPA will solicit various organizations to provide sponsorship for the entire event, including your presentation. The
compensation discussed will not increase should additional funding be secured. According to the ACPE Guidelines for
Standards for Commercial Support, no funds can go directly from the commercial supporter to the speaker; therefore, MPA will
not be obligated to sign or approve grant requests or funding applications of any kind should you seek funding on your own.
In an effort to enhance the participants’ knowledge of this topic, MPA requires you to develop supportive and supplemental
materials, such as handouts and a program outline, references or key points (limited to one page). MPA will post your handout
online in PDF format and provide a link to registered attendees.
Acceptance of Proposal
All proposals will be reviewed, and if your presentation is accepted, we will contact you to finalize arrangements and appropriate
compensation will be discussed with you.
