Campbell Launches Continuing Education Web Portal
Fifteen hours of continuing education (CE) credit is not always easy to come by for full-time pharmacists balancing professional and family responsibilities, but it is an annual requirement to maintain licensure in North Carolina. A new web portal developed by the Campbell University College of Pharmacy and Health Science’s Continuing Education program provides pharmacists with more CE options while cutting cost and time expenditures.
The CPHS Continuing Pharmacy Education (CPE) web portal is a comprehensive system that allows administrators to develop, plan and coordinate CPE programming while providing users with a 24/7 resource to register for events, complete post-event assessments and immediately receive CE credit. Beginning May 30 streaming video and recorded CE events will be available to pharmacists nationally. By integrating with CPHS Learning Enhancement and Resource Network (LEARN) Portal, the college is able to offer quality, accredited on demand or live webinar programming at the participant’s convenience.
“The CPE web portal is a complete, comprehensive solution to managing the CE process,” said Andy Bowman, Pharm.D., director of Campbell’s Continuing Education program. “With the addition of this administrative resource we look forward to increasing the quantity and quality of CPE programming well beyond our historic offering.”
“We’re very excited about the new portal. Not only can we advertize our programs online, participants will be able to watch programming at home at their leisure or at work," says Bowman. "In addition, statements will be available for printing online and can be immediately added to the participant’s transcript. We will also upload the participant’s CPE credits to the North Carolina Board of Pharmacy website. This will assist pharmacists during the annual license renewal process. The CPE web portal will allow participants to form a life-long relationship with the CPHS CPE program."
Currently participants can browse and register for events by going to the CPE web portal at https://cmetracker.net/campbell/catalog. CPE web portal will not only increase the number of pharmacists who can take advantage of CPE programs, but will also broaden Campbell’s reach to pharmacy professionals across the state and nation, Bowman added.
