LENGTH - 60 minutes
NACDS has joined in partnership with NFID to offer enduring Continuing Pharmacy Education (CPE) credit to pharmacists who participate in the webinar, Influenza Immunization and Chronic Health Conditions, and complete the related assessment and evaluation. Please review the information below for detailed steps on how to claim credit.
Select the program at the bottom of this page titled - Influenza Immunization and Chronic Health Conditions. Successful completion of the program involves viewing the full 60-minute webinar, passing an assessment with an 80%, and completing an evaluation. Successful completion of this component will result in 1 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 Sanofi Pasteur to NFID. NFID policies restrict funders from controlling program content.
At the conclusion of this activity, participants will be able to:
Describe how the inflammatory response exacerbates chronic health conditions
Discuss the role of influenza vaccination in risk-reduction for disease, disability, and death (morbidity and mortality)
Define challenges and summarize recommendations for increasing influenza vaccination rates in adults with chronic health conditions
The National Association of Chain Drug Stores is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Pharmacy Education as a provider of continuing pharmacy education.
