4 2015 MPA ANNUAL CONVENTION & EXPOSITION FINAL CONVENTION BROCHURE WELCOME! On behalf of the MPA Executive Board and the staff, I am pleased to welcome you to the 2015 Michigan Pharmacists Association (MPA) Annual Convention & Exposition. The MPA Annual Convention & Exposition has the prestige of being the largest state pharmacy Convention in the country! Approximately 1,500 pharmacists, student pharmacists and pharmacy technicians attended in 2014, and we are looking forward to another exceptional conference. Education has always been a passion of mine, both as an educator and lifelong learner. The MPA Annual Convention & Exposition holds a prominent spot on my annual calendar of events that I look forward to attending each year. In addition to being an attendee, I am also honored to present at this year s conference. This year, I will be working with the students and new practitioners to discuss best practices for curriculum vitae/resume writing and interviewing skills. Whether you are a student, seasoned practitioner or technician, there are a multitude of events to experience over this three-day conference. Here are what I would consider five highlights of the event. 1. Keynote Session and Other Great Continuing Education Programming Our Keynote Session this year will be given by Dr. Kevin McCauley from the Institute for Addiction Study and New Roads Treatment Centers. He will be speaking to us about the neurobiology behind addiction. Be sure not to miss this interesting topic and dynamic speaker on Saturday. In addition to general sessions, educational programming is structured around three key tracks to assist members in finding relevant programs quickly. The conference provides members with a wide array of engaging topics and more than 20 hours of potential continuing education. 2. Annual Banquet The Annual Banquet on Saturday night is a great opportunity to dress up, unwind and recognize our colleagues who go above and beyond for the profession of pharmacy. This is also a great opportunity to provide mentorship to student pharmacists through the Michigan Pharmacy Foundation (MPF) Adopt-a-Student program. Not only does this program provide the student with a banquet ticket, but it also provides them an opportunity to meet and network with their parent throughout dinner. This program can serve as the initial catalyst to a rewarding ongoing professional relationship for both parties. 3. House of Delegates The House of Delegates is the policy-forming body of MPA. The House of Delegates convenes annually at the Convention to discuss proposed policy changes and review the bylaws of the Association. This is a great opportunity to hear resolutions presented for consideration and the lively discussion that often follows. If you have any questions, please see Speaker of the House Paul Walker or Vice Speaker of the House Michael Crowe. 4. Charity Auction Benefiting MPF The mission of MPF is to advance pharmacy through education, practice innovation and research focused on patient care, for the improvement and promotion of public health and public education. Be sure to visit the Charity Auction on Level 5 of the Detroit Marriott to bid on some great items, and to help support this admirable cause! WELCOME 4 5. Network, Network and Network Some More To remain relevant, it is imperative that we stay up-to-date on the latest topics, regulations and innovations in our profession. Take advantage of this conference to catch up and network with colleagues, exchange ideas, debate current issues and take in the information that is being provided by our speakers. In closing, I would like to take a moment to express my sincere gratitude to the MPA staff. This exceptional event would not be possible without their dedication and hard work. I would also like to take a moment to thank the exhibitors, sponsors, speakers and volunteers for helping to make this event a success. I hope that you leave this weekend not only encouraged but inspired to help move our profession forward; so take this opportunity to network, learn and have a great time! Jennifer Hagerman MPA President

They are also Pharmacy Technician Continuing Education (PTCE)-accredited through MPA for pharmacy technician certification, which is not in any way related to ACPE accreditation. Even though MPA may accredit an activity for technicians, it is the technician s responsibility to determine whether the subject matter is acceptable to the Pharmacy Technician Certification Board (PTCB) for recertification. PTCB has designated the following topics as appropriate: Medication distribution and inventory control systems Pharmacy administration and management calculations Programs specific to pharmacy technicians Interpersonal skills Organizational skills Patient safety Pharmacy law Pharmacology/drug therapy Programs relating to functions outside the scope of practice for pharmacy technicians are not accepted by PTCB. Pharmacy technicians are encouraged to go to PTCB.org for additional information on continuing education. Michigan Pharmacists Association is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Pharmacy Education (ACPE) as a provider of continuing pharmacy education. Pharmacy Technician Continuing Education (PTCE) is provided exclusively through Michigan Pharmacists Association. INITIAL RELEASE AND EXPIRATION DATES Activities Occurring on Feb. 27, Initial Release Date: Feb. 27, 2015; Expiration Date: Feb. 27, 2018 Activities Occurring on Feb. 28, Initial Release Date: Feb. 28, 2015; Expiration Date: Feb. 28, 2018 Activities Occurring on March 1, Initial Release Date: March 1, 2015; Expiration Date: March 1, 2018 OBTAINING PCE CREDIT Individuals have the opportunity to earn 22 hours of continuing education credit. These activities are structured to meet knowledge- and application-based educational needs. A knowledge-based activity acquires factual knowledge. An application-based activity applies to information learned in the timeframe allotted. Information in knowledge- and application-type activities is based on evidence as accepted in the literature by the health care professions. Pharmacy continuing education (PCE) credit will be earned based on participation in individually accredited activities. Attendance and participation are required before obtaining PCE credit. Any individual who is more than 10 minutes late to an activity or leaves an activity early will not be granted PCE credit. This procedure will be strictly enforced, so please plan accordingly. The following outlines the procedures for appropriately earning PCE credit. Please review them thoroughly. MPA will not be held responsible for individuals not adhering to these guidelines. Activity Evaluation Forms and Posttest Examinations Continuing education program attendees will be required to complete evaluations and posttest questions, if received by presenters, online at education/liveposttests by March 16, Participants must pass each posttest with a score of 70 percent or greater. Posttest questions are not applicable to application-based programs; however, evaluations must be completed. Individuals not able to complete this requirement online must contact MPA before March 16, For knowledge-based programs in which presenters did not submit posttest questions, attendees will not be penalized. Continuing Education Attendance Form Each registrant packet will contain a Continuing Education Attendance Form that you will use to record all continuing education sessions that you attend throughout the Convention. Your name and address are required, so please fill out this form appropriately. If programs occurring at the same time are indicated, credit will not be awarded for either program. PCE credit will not be awarded if the completed white portion of this form is not placed in designated drop boxes at the Convention. Participants should retain the yellow copy. Individuals submitting or mailing their Continuing Education Attendance Form to MPA for validation after March 16, 2015, will be charged a $10 processing fee. Continuing Education Attendance Forms will be accepted until March 30, Forms submitted after March 30, 2015, will not be accepted or valid for continuing education credit. Drop Box Just prior to leaving the Convention for the weekend, place the original completed white Continuing Education Attendance Form in one of the various drop boxes marked Continuing Education Attendance Forms. All Continuing Education Attendance Forms must be placed in a drop box by 2:15 p.m. on Sunday, March 1, 2015, or mailed to MPA by March 16, Drop boxes will be available in various locations throughout the hotel. CPE MONITOR AND STATEMENTS OF CREDIT CPE Monitor, a national, collaborative effort by the Accreditation Council for Pharmacy Education (ACPE) and the National Association of Boards of Pharmacy (NABP) to provide an electronic system for pharmacists and pharmacy technicians to track their completed continuing pharmacy education (CPE) credits, became fully operational on Jan. 1, Convention attendees will be required to provide MPA with their e-profile identification number for CPE Monitor, as well as their birthdate CONTINUING EDUCATION 2015 MPA ANNUAL CONVENTION & EXPOSITION FINAL CONVENTION BROCHURE 13

14 2015 MPA ANNUAL CONVENTION & EXPOSITION FINAL CONVENTION BROCHURE CONTINUING EDUCATION ACCREDITATION in MMDD format. To obtain your e-profile ID, visit MyCPEMonitor. net. Pharmacists earning continuing education credit at the Convention and meeting all requirements will be able to view a comprehensive list of the ACPE-accredited activities they have taken through CPE Monitor. Posttests for knowledge-based programs will not be graded and continuing education credit will not be processed until the online evaluation and posttest has officially closed for response on March 16, Please allow MPA an additional six weeks to grade posttests and process and upload credit to CPE Monitor. NOTE: ACPE guidelines prohibit MPA from issuing credit more than 60 days after the Convention for any reason; therefore, to avoid denial of credit, it is imperative that pharmacists complete the online evaluations and posttests by March 16, 2015, to allow sufficient time for processing. Partial credit will not be awarded. The Pharmacy Technician Certification Board does not require certified pharmacy technicians to earn credit through ACPEaccredited activities. Therefore, MPA activities are approved through MPA s Pharmacy Technician Continuing Education (PTCE) process, which is not ACPE-affiliated and, therefore, MPA will not submit program information to NABP and ACPE for PTCEaccredited activities and they will not be available on CPE Monitor. Certified pharmacy technicians are still encouraged to obtain their NABP e-profile identification number if they plan to participate in ACPE-approved activities of other organizations. MPA will provide continuing education statements of credit to pharmacy technicians meeting the requirements approximately 60 days following the Convention. PCE credit will not be granted to individuals who have not paid in full or to participants who claim to have attended programs on days for which they were not registered. Attendance and active participation in a session are required to obtain PCE credit. Monitors stationed at the entrance to all programs will inform anyone who is more than 10 minutes late to a program that PCE credit is no longer available. This procedure will be strictly enforced, so please plan accordingly. To ensure active participation in all programs, MPA may compare Continuing Education Attendance Forms with submitted evaluations and posttest examinations. In the event an evaluation is not submitted or posttest questions aren t answered for programs indicated on the Continuing Education Attendance Form, MPA retains the authority to deny PCE credit. REQUIRED CONTINUING EDUCATION Pharmacists are required to earn 10 hours of live PCE credit and one hour of pain PCE credit, both requirements inclusive of the 30 hours normally earned. Certified pharmacy technicians must obtain one hour of pharmacy law and one hour of patient safety continuing education credit every two years. Michigan pharmacists are not required to obtain pharmacy law continuing education credit. For pharmacists needing to fulfill the requirement of obtaining 10 hours of live PCE, the Convention offers more than 20 hours of live PCE credit. CONTINUING EDUCATION Help the Foundation Support Operation Care Package Michigan Once again this year, Michigan Pharmacy Foundation (MPF) has chosen to support Operation Care Package Michigan, an organization dedicated to supporting men and women who are serving our country. MPF is collecting donations from their wish list for troops deployed overseas during the MPA Annual Convention & Exposition. Monetary donations will also be accepted. A full list of items on the wish list can be found at Examples are listed below. Advil Bar soap Batteries Beef jerky Candy Conditioner Cough drops Dental floss Disposable razors Energy bars Excederin Greeting cards (blank; all occasions) Gum Hand lotion Hand sanitizer Kleenex (pocket size) Motrin Mouthwash Nuts Q-tips Shampoo Shaving cream Small stuffed animals Toothpaste Trail mix Tums Tylenol Drop off items or make a monetary contribution in the Mackinac Center, Level 5, during the following hours: Thursday, Feb. 26, 6-8 p.m. Friday, Feb. 27, 7 a.m.-6 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 28, 7 a.m.-3 p.m. 14

16 CPE MONITOR: HAVE YOU OBTAINED YOUR E-PROFILE ID? Electronic CE Tracking System for Pharmacists and Pharmacy Technicians What is CPE Monitor? CPE Monitor is a national, collaborative effort by the Accreditation Council for Pharmacy Education (ACPE) and the National Association of Boards of Pharmacy (NABP) to provide an electronic system for pharmacists and pharmacy technicians to track their completed continuing pharmacy education (CPE) credits. It also offers the Boards of Pharmacy the opportunity to electronically authenticate the CPE units completed by their licensees, rather than requiring pharmacists and pharmacy technicians to submit their statements of credit upon request or for random audits. Michigan Pharmacists Association (MPA), as an ACPE-accredited provider, is required to report pharmacist CPE using this new tracking system. CPE Monitor has been fully operational since Jan. 1, How Does CPE Monitor Work? Pharmacists are encouraged to go to MyCPEMonitor.net to obtain their NABP e-profile identification to ensure their e-profile is properly set up prior to implementation of CPE Monitor. Pharmacists and pharmacy technicians will receive a unique identification number after setting up their e-profile with NABP. Pharmacist and pharmacy technician participants must provide their NABP e-profile identification number and date of birth (in MMDD format) to MPA when they register for a CPE activity or complete activity evaluations. It will be the responsibility of the pharmacist or pharmacy technician to provide the correct information (i.e., e-profile identification number and date of birth in MMDD format) to MPA. If this information is not provided, NABP and ACPE prohibit MPA from issuing CPE credit. MPA will be responsible for submitting the completed program information for participants CPE credit to ACPE and NABP, including individual e-profile identification numbers and dates of birth. After CPE units are processed by ACPE and NABP, pharmacists and pharmacy technicians will be able to log in to a comprehensive electronic profile, MyCPEMonitor.net, to access information about their completed CPE from any ACPE provider. What Are the Benefits of CPE Monitor? CPE Monitor provides a secure, central system (available 24/7) that maintains and tracks all ACPE-accredited CPE credits. This process eliminates the need for pharmacists to file and maintain hard copy statements of credit for CPE activities received by MPA or any other ACPE provider. Instead, online access to their inventory of completed credits will allow pharmacists and pharmacy technicians to easily monitor their compliance with CPE requirements and print statements of credit. How Does CPE Monitor Impact Pharmacy Technicians? The Pharmacy Technician Certification Board (PTCB) does not require certified pharmacy technicians to earn credit through ACPE-accredited activities. Therefore, MPA activities are approved through MPA s Pharmacy Technician Continuing Education (PTCE) process, which is not ACPE-affiliated and, therefore, MPA will not submit program information to NABP and ACPE for PTCE-accredited activities and they will not be available on CPE Monitor. Certified pharmacy technicians will be mailed printed statements of credit from MPA. Certified pharmacy technicians are still encouraged to go to MyCPEMonitor.net to obtain their NABP e-profile identification number if they plan to participate in ACPE-approved activities of other organizations. Who Should I Contact for More Information? Pharmacists or pharmacy technicians with questions regarding their NABP e-profile or CPE Monitor should refer to the NABP Web site at NABP.net; contact NABP Customer Service via at or call (847)
