ACPE and the National Association of Boards of Pharmacy (NABP) have developed a continuing pharmacy education (CPE) tracking service, CPE Monitor that will authenticate and store data for completed CPE units received by pharmacists and pharmacy technicians from ACPE-accredited providers. American Health Resources is a ACPE accredited provider. Register for the CPE Monitor here.
American Health Resources, Inc currently offers two methods by which to earn continuing education:
Live Programs - This type of program involves coming to a specific site for a set number of hours to listen to a series of speakers on predetermined topics. Participants are required to fill out a program evaluation form and attend all portions of the program for which they would like to receive continuing education credit. Please see the Live Programs section for more specifics on the programs we offer.
Home Study Courses - The objective of these courses is to update pharmacists' knowledge of current concepts in pharmacy at their own pace, without having to attend a live event. Each course consists of written material covering a given subject, along with a post-test.
The service promises to save state board of pharmacy, CPE providers, pharmacists, and pharmacy technicians time and cost by streamlining the process of verifying that licensees and registrants meet CPE requirements and by providing a centralized repository for pharmacists’ and pharmacy technicians’ continuing education details.
This service will be particularly helpful to the growing number of pharmacists who are licensed in multiple states, and thus may need to meet the varied CPE requirements of different state boards of pharmacy.
Providers will no longer need to provide electronic or printed statements of credit to their pharmacist and pharmacy technician participants. Instead, once information is received by NABP, the tracking system will make CPE data for each participant available to the state boards of pharmacy where the participant is licensed or registered. Implementation of the CPE tracking system will also eliminate the need for Annual Activity Update (AAU) reporting by the provider each year.

The CPE tracking system creates a direct link for sending CPE data from ACPE-accredited providers to ACPE and then to the National Association of Boards of Pharmacy (NABP), ensuring that all reported CPE units are officially verified by ACPE-accredited providers.
Pharmacists and pharmacy technicians may obtain a unique identification number from NABP to be used when registering for a CPE activity from an ACPE-accredited provider. For a given Universal Activity Number, the provider will be offered a variety of mechanisms to upload each participant’s NABP e-profile ID number via the Provider Web Tool. After CPE units are processed by ACPE and NABP, pharmacists and pharmacy technicians will be able to login to a comprehensive electronic profile to access information about their completed CPE.

Continuing Professional Development (CPD) is an approach to lifelong learning being discussed as a potential model for pharmacists in the United States. CPD does not replace continuing education (CE), but CE will be an essential component of CPD. Its purpose is to ensure that pharmacists maintain their knowledge, skills, and competencies to practice throughout their careers in their specific area of practice, to improve the pharmacist's personal performance, and ultimately to improve patient and public health outcomes. - ACPE
