CE Accreditation


The American Society of Health-System Pharmacists is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Pharmacy Education as a provider of continuing pharmacy education.


ASHP determines the number of contact hours for each session. Registrants may earn up to 13.5 contact hours (1.35 CEUs) at the 2019 ASHP National Pharmacy Preceptors Conference. No partial credit is allowed for pharmacists.

Some states have special requirements for program content to meet requirements for continuing education. Please check with your state to determine if such requirements exist and to determine if our programs meet the requirements.

Florida Department of Health Continuing Education Credits

Florida-licensed pharmacists must self-report their meeting CE credits to CE Broker. ASHP is not offering Florida Consultant Pharmacy CE at this meeting.

Continuing Professional Development

An approach to lifelong learning, Continuing Professional Development (CPD) is a process of active participation in learning activities geared to helping individuals develop and maintain continuing competence, enhance their professional practice, and achieve their career goals. CPD emphasizes self-appraisal and educational plan development, implementation, documentation, and evaluation. CE sessions or other activities in which you participate at the meeting may form part of your own CPD self-appraisal or plan.

Continuing Education

ASHP is one of the largest providers of pharmacy CE accredited by ACPE. In accordance with ACPEs Accreditation Standards for Continuing Pharmacy Education, ASHP fully supports the following:

  • Active Learning
    A basic principle and best practice in adult learning, active learning involves interaction with faculty and other participants to improve learning, retention, and application of new knowledge and skills. Even in large sessions, faculty use participatory instructional techniques intended to engage you more fully as a learner.
  • Learning Assessments and Feedback
    The standards call for learning assessments to be part of every activity; assessments and mechanisms for feedback to participants are part of every CE session.
  • Evaluations
    ACPE's standards require us to develop and conduct evaluations of each CE activity. Beyond this requirement, your feedback is important to us for evaluating achievement of the learning objectives, quality of faculty, effectiveness of teaching methods and materials, and perceptions of commercial bias.
  • Noncommercialism and the ACCME Standards for Commercial Support
    ACPE has adopted the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME) Standards for Commercial Support. These standards require complete separation of CE from commercial support. Instructional materials for CE activities, including presentation slides, undergo an intensive review process at ASHP to ensure compliance with the Standards for Commercial Support. Disclosures of relevant financial interest by everyone involved in the planning or delivery of ASHP's CE content have been included in the onsite program book and are announced in the sessions. In accordance with these standards, any actual conflicts of interest have been resolved prior to the CE activity.

Educational Session Materials

  • Educational session materials will be available approximately two weeks before the meeting. If you prefer printed materials, please print them before you come to the meeting. Materials cannot be printed onsite.
