    Our Mission

    The OSU College of Pharmacy Office of Continuing Pharmacy Education (CPE) seeks to provide high-quality CPE opportunities to meet the needs of pharmacists and pharmacy technicians in the state Oregon, throughout the region, and nationwide. The major focus of the College’s continuing education offerings is on the knowledge, application, skills, and attitudes necessary to ensure optimal medication therapy outcomes, promote patient safety, manage practice settings, satisfy educational requirements for pharmacist re-licensure, meet recertification requirements for pharmacy technicians, and meet statewide protocols, including the expansion of pharmacist prescribing and certification.

    The College assures its CPE programs and activities satisfy the mission by:
    • Complying with the Policies and Procedures set forth by the Accreditation Council for Pharmacy Education (ACPE)
    • Identifying the educational needs of pharmacists and pharmacy technicians through self-reporting of practitioners, legislative changes or updates, evaluation from a regulatory or accredited body, release of new or updated evidence-based treatment guidelines, town hall meetings, and/or specific program requests made by practitioners
    • Partnering with local, regional, and national pharmacy organizations to create and implement programs that meet the identified educational needs of pharmacists and pharmacy technicians
    • Seeking feedback from partners and learners to ensure we are meeting the needs of those we serve
