New this year: session recordings will be available as home-study/enduring material activities.

Sessions are developed with the support of The National Center for Interprofessional Practice and Education’s Office of Interprofessional Continuing Professional Development (OICPD). The OICPD is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Pharmacy Education (ACPE) to provide continuing education for the healthcare team.  

The summit is a virtual conference hosted on Webex Events (formerly Socio), an easy-to use platform with many opportunities to collaborate. We will provide a short instructional video to attendees, so they are 100% comfortable navigating the system before the start of the event.

Join small virtual group discussions and share your ideas, experience, and solutions. Each discussion is focused on a central question and will be led by an experienced moderator.
