Pre-Meeting CPE
Expanded Scopes of Practice – No More Mickey Mousing
ACPE UANs 0205-0000-17-001-L03-P/T
(0.2 CEUs – 2 contact hours)
Target Audience: Pharmacists and Technicians
Activity Type: Knowledge-based
 

Learning Objectives:

At the completion of this activity, the participant will be able to:

  1. Explain how expanding the scopes of practice of pharmacists and pharmacy technicians will evolve the practice of pharmacy.
  2. Describe how allowing pharmacy technicians to perform certain tasks historically performed only by pharmacists can improve patient outcomes.
  3. Describe how regulations need to be revised in order for several practices, such as pharmacist prescribing, tech-check-tech, and immunization by pharmacy technicians, to be accomplished.

Years of discussion and debate have provided conceptual frameworks for expanded scopes of practice for the pharmacist and pharmacy technician; however, translating that framework into an actionable implementation blueprint has been slow to occur. This session will present for discussion and analysis specific responsibilities for the pharmacist and pharmacy technician in a changed and expanded scope of practice setting. It will also address the question, “Should regulations allow for both pharmacists and pharmacy technicians to expand their scopes of practice to their fullest capacities without listing allowed and prohibited activities?”

The spirit of Epcot, or Experimental Prototype Community of Tomorrow, is reflected in the various telepharmacy practices that are currently under review by many boards of pharmacy. Such telepharmacy “prototypes” are proposed to address various practice settings, and boards are tasked with determining whether patient needs can be adequately met while protecting the public. Regulators of health care providers will provide participants with an in-depth discussion comparing the practice of telehealth with the practice of telepharmacy.

Executive Officer and Board Member CPE
Naloxone and Beyond: Can Expanded Scopes Impact the Opioid Epidemic?
ACPE UANs 0205-0000-17-005-L03-P/T

Many states have enacted prescribing authority or statewide protocols for pharmacists to prescribe and dispense naloxone without a prescription to patients at risk for an opioid overdose and/or to a person in a position to assist a person at risk for experiencing an opiate-related overdose. Is this authority being utilized to its full capacity? A specialist in opioid use disorder, a board of pharmacy representative, and a pharmacist on the front lines will share with participants how pharmacists having this expanded scope of practice can help curb this national epidemic that has taken the lives of too many.

Obtaining Continuing Education Credit

Participants may earn up to 6.5 contact hours (0.65 continuing education units) of Accreditation Council for Pharmacy Education (ACPE)-accredited continuing pharmacy education (CPE) credit. 

Requirements for Earning CPE

To earn ACPE-accredited CPE for a session hosted by NABP, participants must be registered as an attendee (not as a guest), attend the session in its entirety, and submit a CPE session code online using the NABP CPE submission site. Participants must complete a session evaluation, an evaluation for each speaker, and, if applicable, pass a post-session test in order for the credits to be recorded and transmitted to CPE Monitor®. Participants may also be required to submit their NABP e-Profile ID and date of birth (MMDD). The CPE session codes will be provided to you during each session. For your convenience, a CPE session code log sheet will be included in the hard copy program book for you to record your CPE session codes.

All CPE submissions must be submitted online within 60 days from the first CPE activity of the meeting (no later than Wednesday, July 19, 2017, 11:59 AM EDT). If you do not submit your CPE claim within 60 days of the date you completed the CPE activity you will be unable to receive credit, as this is the maximum amount of time allowed for providers to transmit CPE claims to ACPE for credit. Please submit your claim as soon as possible to ensure that you receive credit. Overrides will not be provided to participants who do not complete all of the required steps within the 60-day window. Credit earned will be displayed in the CPE Monitor section of your NABP e-Profile and also be available for printing online.

ACPENABP and the NABP Foundation are accredited by ACPE as providers of continuing pharmacy education. ACPE provider number: 0205.

 

Continuing Legal Education

NABP staff will be available to assist attendees on an individual basis to apply for continuing legal education (CLE) credit for attending CPE sessions.
