The National Association of Boards of Pharmacy® (NABP®) and the Accreditation Council for Pharmacy Education (ACPE) are pleased to announce that CPE Monitor® has reached a milestone with over five million continuing pharmacy education (CPE) activity records now stored in the CPE Monitor system. CPE Monitor is a national collaborative service from NABP, ACPE, and ACPE providers that allows licensees to track their completed CPE credits electronically. ACPE-accredited providers are now actively transmitting CPE data to support CPE Monitor, and require pharmacists and pharmacy technicians to submit their NABP e-Profile ID and date of birth in order to obtain ACPE-accredited CPE credit.
Currently, more than 266,800 pharmacists and 181,700 technicians have created NABP e-Profiles and registered for the CPE Monitor service, allowing them to electronically track CPE activity from participating providers.
Boards of pharmacy will be able to verify their licensees’ and registrants’ compliance with CPE requirements by logging into the secure Board e-Profile Connect system that is scheduled to launch in November 2013. The ability to access CPE activity records electronically streamlines the verification process for boards of pharmacy, and will eventually eliminate the need for boards to collect printed statements of credit for ACPE-accredited CPE.
NABP is the independent, international, and impartial Association that assists its state member boards and jurisdictions in developing, implementing, and enforcing uniform standards for the purpose of protecting the public health.
