ACPHS Timely Topics Midday Online Regularly Scheduled Lecture Series

As pharmacists, you are required and obligated to acquire and maintain the knowledge and skills necessary to undertake the necessary tasks required by the profession, with the overall goal of optimizing patient outcomes.  On a daily basis, there are numerous new topics published in the professional literature and health care media, which can have an impact on patient care.  How to stay up-to-date and informed becomes an educational need that contributes to knowledge and practice gaps.  These brief, midday online continuing pharmacy education activities are intended to inform you about the latest and most up-to-date information on new drugs, new treatment guidelines or standards, newly identified therapeutic issues, new factors impacting the profession, new methods and techniques to improve patient care and new health policies or regulations.

In the fall of 2019, we will begin providing short webinars on timely topics in pharmacy practice.  These activities will be provided on-line on a scheduled basis around lunch time so you can view the live presentations from home or at work.  Prior to the live activity, you will be sent the link to the Zoom meeting along with any handouts.  You will be able to ask questions via the Chat function to the presenting faculty in order to obtain live CPE credit.

ACPHS Learning Management System

The ACPHS Learning Management System (LMS) manages all phases of the continuing education program - from registration through completion of evaluations - with secure, hosted software. 

Our LMS provides program participants with the ability to create and manage their own accounts, complete activities, and print certificates of attendance.

* * * ALL ACPHS program participants must create a personal LMS account. * * *

In order to create a personal LMS account, you will need your NABP #, your MM/DD of birth, and the name and address of your practice site if you are a preceptor.

You will then be able to register, receive your handouts, complete program evaluations and learning assessments all in one place. As soon as you have completed all activity requirements, your credits will automatically be submitted to CPE Monitor.

To establish your account ...

Albany College of Pharmacy and Health Sciences Office of Continuing Education and Professional Development will ensure the safety and security of its website and learning management system to maintain confidentiality and guard against the breach or dissemination of personal and private information.

Registration and Handout Policy

Program registrations are now being accepted through the ACPHS Learning Management System only, and on-site registrations will no longer be accepted.

Speaker handouts will be e-mailed prior to the date of the Continuing Pharmacy Education Activity that you registered to attend.  All participants are welcome to bring their laptops or tablets and use the College's guest wireless network to view the speaker handouts.  We will no longer have printed copies available at registration.

CPE Monitor and Statements of Credit

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 to keep track of their completed continuing pharmacy education (CPE) credits.

It also offers state boards of pharmacy the opportunity to electronically authenticate the CPE units completed by their licensees rather than requiring submission of proof of statements of credit upon request or completing random audits. You will be able to print your statements of credit through your NABP account.


Albany College of Pharmacy and Health Sciences is pleased to launch on-line, live broadcasting of continuing pharmacy educational activities.  Participants may register to view activities on-line from off campus.  Attendees who register for remote viewing will receive a link to attend the program using their computer, tablet or phone, along with instructions to access Zoom Meeting.  You will be able to listen to the speakers and view the educational materials and respond to polling questions.  In order to qualify as a live activity, questions may be posed to the presenters.  


The Office of Continuing Education and Professional Development does not print or mail our program brochures. All brochures are sent via e-mail. If you would like to be added to our e-mail list, please e-mail Lori Kline or phone her at 518-694-7231.
