Standard 1 – Achievement of Mission and Goals

Standard 2 – Gap Analysis

The provider must develop CPE activities based on a knowledge, skill, or practice gap. The provider should identify gaps between what pharmacists and pharmacy technicians currently know or do and what is needed and desired in practice. Webinar Fee: $75 (Non-refundable)

Standards 3 and 4 – Continuing Pharmacy Education Activities and Objectives

The provider must structure each CPE activity to meet the knowledge-, application- and/or practice-based (Certificate Program) educational needs of pharmacists and technicians.

Standard 5 – Standards for Integrity and Independence

The provider must ensure that accredited continuing education serves the needs of patients and the public.
