The Department affirms the mission of LIU Pharmacy and articulates its own primary mission of providing sufficient, affordable, convenient and high-quality knowledge-based continuing professional education (CPE) activities to maintain, advance and enhance the competencies and ongoing professional development of pharmacists and pharmacy technicians.
We provide an average of 20 continuing professional education activities each year. Our target audiences vary by activity but in most cases activities are structured for pharmacists and/or pharmacy technicians practicing in community-, ambulatory- and/or institutional-based settings that deliver patient-centered care. Many of our activities focus on pharmacotherapy for various disease states and/or special populations such as geriatric or pediatric patients. These activities are designed to advance and enhance the evidence-based practice of our participants. We also regularly offer activities that focus on general practice areas such as pharmacy laws and regulations, patient education and communications, and practice management.
The Department strives to provide a minimum of 3 contact hours of activities on medication errors and patient safety each year for those pharmacists needing to satisfy New York State requirements for continuing professional education.
Our offerings are mostly knowledge-based, live format activities and we now offer at home, on-demand distance activities through our online portal at RxSchool accessible from this site.
LIU Pharmacy’s Department of Continuing Professional Education is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Pharmacy Education as a provider of continuing pharmacy education.
