ACPE Accreditation for EPIQ Expired July 28, 2017

The ACPE accreditation for the Educating Pharmacists in Quality (EPIQ) Program expired on July 28, 2017.  
If you completed sessions prior to this time, your information will be submitted for CE credit.  EPIQ is still available on the PQA website as a resource for interested users, however, there will no longer be an opportunity to receive CE credit.

PQA is exploring new ways to deliver quality-related education and will announce plans for EPIQ 3.0 at a later date.

EPIQ is a resource developed by PQA that is designed to train practicing pharmacists, health professionals, and pharmacy students in measuring, improving, and reporting quality of care in pharmacy practice.  Featuring 26 complimentary online sessions, EPIQ materials are also available for pharmacy faculty and students as a turnkey course which can either be utilized in its entirety as a full semester course, or separated into individual sessions to be integrated into an existing class. Each session, all of which may be downloaded, contains a lecture PowerPoint with corresponding video, instructor guide, interactive activity set, and assessment questions.

Please register or login below to access EPIQ sessions and educational resources.
