HANDOUT: The handout will be uploaded as an attachment in Teams Meeting.

CE CREDIT: Immediately following the presentation, registered participants will receive an email with a link to the evaluation. Within one week after attending the session, participants must complete this online evaluation. The CPE Administrator will submit each participant’s NABP number and date of birth combination to CPE Monitor for continuing education credit, no later than two weeks after the live presentation. Only ONE session may be claimed for each time block. If multiple concurrent sessions are claimed, or if a session is claimed that is not reflected on the paper sign or the attendance roster within Microsoft Teams Meeting, the offending participant forfeits CE credit.

It is recommended that participants log on and review the information under "My Account" prior to completing evaluations. The NABP ePID and date of birth fields must be accurate for credit reporting to occur. Participants are encouraged to check their NABP eProfiles for receipt of credit within two weeks of submitting their evaluation(s). If a participant notices an error in credit on their NABP e-profile, they are encouraged to contact Nicole Fields at soon as possible. To best comply with ACPE's CE credit reporting policy, the University of Health Sciences and Pharmacy is unable, for any reason, to award or correct CE credit if more than 60 days have passed from the event.
After one week, evaluations will close and CPE credit may no longer be claimed. If the deadline is missed or if a CE credit correction must be issued, an additional fee may be incurred for late submission - please see our policy, located on the FAQ page for details. Evaluations close November 24, 2020 at 11:59 PM (CDT).
