    Pharmacy Continuing Education Requirements 

    This activity is accredited by Michigan Pharmacists Association (MPA) and is structured to meet knowledge-based educational needs. A knowledge-based activity acquires factual knowledge. Information in knowledge-based activities is based on evidence  as accepted in the literature by the health care professions. Pharmacy continuing education (PCE) credit will be earned based  on participation in this activity. 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 must fully participate in the activity and complete an online activity evaluation and posttest questions, if  received by presenters, with a passing score of 70 percent or greater before June 21, 2022. Online evaluations and  posttests will not be available for completion and requests to process credit will not be accepted after this date. See the program  instruction sheet distributed during the activity for the online activity link. NOTE: ACPE guidelines prohibit MPA from issuing credit  more than 60 days after the activity for any reason. If all requirements are met, participants will receive pharmacy continuing  education (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 complete activity evaluations. It will be the responsibility of the participant to provide  the correct information. If this information is not correctly provided, NABP and ACPE prohibit MPA from issuing CPE credit.  Online access to their inventory of completed credits will allow pharmacists and pharmacy technicians to easily monitor their  compliance with CPE requirements and print statements of credit. Therefore, MPA will not provide printed statements of credit to pharmacists and pharmacy technicians. Partial credit will not be awarded. If you have yet to sign up for CPE Monitor, go to
