1.0 Contact Hour (0.1 CEU) Type of Activity: Knowledge-based
The Illinois Council of Health System Pharmacists is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Pharmacy Education as a provider of continuing pharmacy education.  This activity provides 1 hour (0.1 CEU) of continuing pharmacy education credit (ACPE Universal Activity Number 0121-0000-17-122-L01-P & 0121-0000-17-122-L01-T). 

Attendees must complete a program evaluation and CPE submission online at www.CESally.com. After successful CPE submission to CPE Monitor, attendees may print their statements of continuing pharmacy education credit at www.NABP.net.

Target Audience: This knowledge-based activity was developed for Health-System Pharmacists and Pharmacy Technicians.

PTCB requires CPhTs to submit 20 hours of pharmacy technician-specific (‘T-specific’) continuing pharmacy education (CPE) to qualify for recertification. Pharmacy technicians will no long be able to use Pharmacist only or P-specific CPE. In addition, PTCB reduced the number of allowable CPE hours earned through in-service training from 10 to 5. Please advise all pharmacy technicians at your site of this change. As an ACPE accredited provider, ICHP will continue to include Technician specific programming in most if not all of our CPE programming.

CPE Monitor: When registering for this program, you will be required to provide your NABP eProfile ID# and Birthday (MMDD) when registering for this meeting.  This information will be required by any participants seeking CPE credit.  Visit www.ichpnet.org/cpemonitor/ for information about CPE Monitor and how to obtain your NABP ID.
