What is CPE Monitor?
Continuing Pharmacy Education (CPE) Monitor is 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 CPE credits. It will offer state boards of pharmacy the opportunity to electronically authenticate the CPE units completed by their random audits.
Get an Early Start!
To prepare for the new process, pharmacists and technicians are encouraged to obtain their NABP e-Profile ID now to ensure their e-Profile is properly setup. In the latter part of 2012, the e-Profile ID will be required to receive credit for any ACPE-accredited CPE activities.
How it Works
Pharmacists and pharmacy technicians will receive a unique ID after setting up their e-Profile with NABP. Beginning in the latter part of 2011, they will provide their NABP e-Profile ID and Date of Birth to the ACPE-accredited provider when they register for CPE. The system will then direct electronic data from ACPE-accredited providers to ACPE and then to NABP, ensuring that CPE credit is officially verified by the providers. Once information is received by NABP, pharmacists and pharmacy technicians will be able to log in to access information about their completed CPE activities. After the transition period, ACPE-accredited CPE providers will no longer be required to distribute statements of credit.
Benefiting Pharmacists and Pharmacy Technicians
CPE Monitor will provide a secure, central system that will maintain and track all ACPE-accredited continuing education credits. This streamlined process will eliminate the need to file and maintain hard copy statements of credit for CPE activities taken from ACPE-accredited providers.
All information will be maintained in a highly secure environment. NABP does not distribute any personal information for commercial purposes without consent.
Assisting State Boards
This new program's central repository of CPE information will enable efficient verification of a pharmacist's or pharmacy technician's completed CPE upon board request.
