What is CPE Monitor?
ACPE and the National Association of Boards of Pharmacy (NABP) are developing a continuing pharmacy education (CPE) tracking service, CPE Monitor, that will authenticate and store data for completed CPE units received by pharmacists and pharmacy technicians from ACPE-accredited providers
What are the benefits of CPE Monitor?
The service promises to save state board of pharmacy, CPE providers, pharmacists, and pharmacy technicians time and cost by streamlining the process of verifying that licensees and registrants meet CPE requirements and by providing a centralized repository for pharmacists’ and pharmacy technicians’ continuing education details.
This service will be particularly helpful to the growing number of pharmacists who are licensed in multiple states, and thus may need to meet the varied CPE requirements of different state boards of pharmacy.
Providers will no longer need to provide electronic or printed statements of credit to their pharmacist and pharmacy technician participants. Instead, once information is received by NABP, the tracking system will make CPE data for each participant available to the state boards of pharmacy where the participant is licensed or registered. Implementation of the CPE tracking system will also eliminate the need for Annual Activity Update (AAU) reporting by the provider each year.
How will CPE Monitor work?
The CPE tracking system will create a direct link for sending CPE data from ACPE-accredited providers to ACPE and then to NABP, ensuring that all reported CPE units are officially verified by ACPE-accredited providers.
Pharmacists and pharmacy technicians may obtain a unique identification number from NABP to be used when registering for a CPE activity from an ACPE-accredited provider. For a given Universal Activity Number, the provider will be offered a variety of mechanisms to upload each participant’s NABP e-profile ID number via the Provider Web Tool. After CPE units are processed by ACPE and NABP, pharmacists and pharmacy technicians will be able to login to a comprehensive electronic profile to access information about their completed CPE.
