How can participants receive their ACPE certificates
In order to receive your ACPE accreditation points, what you have learnt during this session will be assessed.
At the beginning of their presentations, each presenter will ask 3 questions that will be answered in the content of their presentations. After the congress, you will receive an evaluation with the same questions, and this is when you will need to answer these questions in order to receive your accreditation certificates.
Please note that the ACPE certificate will not be sent automatically, but upon request only. EAHP will send you the certificate within 15 days after receiving your request.
More information on how to access the evaluation forms will be sent soon.
For licensed pharmacists and pharmacy technicians for the USA
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 US-licensed pharmacists and pharmacy technicians from ACPE-accredited providers as the EAHP. 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. The CPE tracking system will create a direct link for sending CPE data from the EAHP to ACPE and then to NABP, ensuring that all reported CPE units are officially verified by the EAHP. To view and track these credits, you must first set up an NABP e-Profile (www.nabp.net/#), obtain your NABP e-Profile ID, and register for CPE Monitor.
So, for each licensed pharmacist from the United States of America who attends the congress, their NABP e-Profile ID and date of birth are requested to be sent out to congress[at]eahp[dot]eu in order to notify NABP and ACPE of the number of CPE units collected by each US participant during the congress on 2023. After CPE units are processed by ACPE and NABP, you will be able to access information about your completed CPE through your NABP e-profile (www.nabp.net/#).
European Council for Pharmacy Education Accreditation
The European Association of Hospital Pharmacists (EAHP) and the European Society of Clinical Pharmacists (ESCP) have founded the European Council for Pharmacy Education Accreditation (ECPhA).
The European Council for Pharmacy Education Accreditation (ECPhA) is establishing a system for accrediting lifelong learning education in pharmacy. ECPhA’s mission is to help improve the quality of continuing education in pharmacy practiced in healthcare settings across Europe via accrediting live and online lifelong learning events throughout collaborating with national healthcare professional associations and national accrediting bodies.
This is being achieved through applying high quality standards in the assessment of available and future continuous professional development and educational programmes, which address the needs and current practice of pharmacists, pharmacy technicians and the pharmacy staff practicing in Europe.
ECPhA is an accreditation provider so the goal of ECPhA is to present an additional layer to the national accreditation systems in the countries where there is one, and not be a substitute of them. A European body, such as ECPhA, will ensure that accreditation of European continued education events is aligned with European practice.
In addition, ECPhA is facilitating the attendance of national education events by participants from other countries by ensuring the transferability of continued education points between countries. ECPhA’s accreditation is also open to other countries from outside Europe.
ECPhA applies high quality standards in the assessment of available educational programmes, which address the needs and current practice of pharmacists, pharmacy technicians and the pharmacy staff practicing in Europe and worldwide.
The 28th EAHP Congress will be ACPE and ECPhA accredited. 1 ECPEC (European Continuous Pharmacy Education Credit)= 1 hour of educational activity
