1.0 Contact Hour (0.1 CEU) Type of Activity: Knowledge
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 Activity # 0121-0000-14-005-L01-P). 

Attendees must complete a program evaluation online and may immediately print their statements of continuing pharmacy education credit at www.healthsystemce.org.

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

At the present time, neither the Pharmacy Technician Certification Board (PTCB) nor the Illinois Board of Pharmacy requires technicians to participate in ‘T,’ or technician-specific continuing education for re-certification or relicensure purposes. Therefore, technicians are welcome to participate in programming that is either ‘P’ or ‘T’ and will receive CE credit for either type, provided they meet all applicable program requirements.

CPE Monitor: When registering for this program, you will be required to provide your NABP e-Provile ID # and Birthday. Beginning in 2013, 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.
