In addition, the conferences are intended to provide helpful advice on various topics and issues related to the preceptor/student relationship to ensure a positive, effective and safe learning/training experience.

NABP e-Profile ID

In 2012, ACPE-accredited providers, such as TSHP, began requesting all participants to provide their NABP e-Profile ID and date of birth (in MMDD format) when they register for a CPE activity or submit a request for credit. It will be the responsibility of the pharmacist or technician to provide the correct information in order to receive credit for participating in a CPE activity. To obtain your NABP e-Profile ID, visit and complete the sign-up process for the "CPE Monitor."

Participants must complete the online evaluation after the program to receive credit. You will receive an email after the conference with more information.
