Select the program at the bottom of this page titled - Increasing Influenza Immunization Rates among College Students. Successful completion of the program involves viewing the full 75-minute webinar, passing an assessment with an 80%, and completing an evaluation. Successful completion of this component will result in 1.25 contact hours of continuing pharmacy education credit. Partial credit will not be awarded. Claim credit within 60 days of enrolling in the webinar.
Continuing pharmacy education (CPE) credit will be awarded for the training course only. This is a knowledge-based activity and is primarily constructed to instill, expand or enhance knowledge through the systematic achievement of specified knowledge, skills, attitudes and performance behaviors.
CPE Monitor, a national, collaborative effort by ACPE and the National Association of Boards of Pharmacy (NABP) to provide an electronic system for pharmacists to track their completed PCE credits, went into effect on Jan. 1, 2013. NACDS, as an ACPE-accredited provider, is required to report pharmacist CPE credit using this new tracking system. Pharmacist participants must provide their NABP e-Profile identification number and date of birth (in MMDD format) when they register for a CPE activity. It will be the responsibility of the pharmacist to provide the correct information (i.e., e-Profile identification number and date of birth in MMDD format). If this information is not provided, NABP and ACPE prohibit NACDS from issuing CPE credit. Online access to their inventory of completed credits will allow pharmacists to easily monitor their compliance with CPE requirements and print statements of credit. Therefore, NACDS will not provide printed statements of credit to pharmacists. If you have not signed up for CPE Monitor, please go to MyCPEMonitor.net.
NACDS is offering this educational programming as a joint provider with the National Foundation for Infectious Diseases (NFID). This webinar is supported by an unrestricted educational grant from Merck & Co., Inc. to NFID.
At the conclusion of this activity, participants will be able to:
Describe attitudes of college students related to influenza
Define key barriers that may prevent college students from receiving an annual influenza vaccination
Outline motivators that may help to increase participation in on-campus influenza vaccination programs
Discuss influenza prevention best practices from US colleges and universities with active on-campus influenza immunization programs
The National Association of Chain Drug Stores is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Pharmacy Education as a provider of continuing pharmacy education.
