Strategic Alliance Partners
Educational Partners/Activity Cosponsors
PTOCPE primarily partners with organizations accredited by the Accreditation Council for Pharmacy Education (ACPE), the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME), and the American Nursing Credentialing Center (ANCC) to plan, develop, implement, and evaluate continuing education (CE) activities for pharmacists, physicians, and nurses. Additionally, PTOCPE partners with non-accredited partners who share our vision for improving healthcare through independent, evidence-based CE that is linked to established national quality measures.
Our educational partners share the PTOCPE Mission of improving the knowledge, competence, and skills of pharmacists so that they may be better prepared to provide the highest quality of pharmacy care to the patients they serve and to the physicians and nurses they assist as part of a multidisciplinary treatment/management team.
PTOCPE’s cosponsors include:
