UpToDate is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME) to award AMA PRA Category 1 Credit™ which may fulfill Continuing Pharmacy Education (CPE, CE) requirements, wholly or in part, in many States. However, UpToDate is not accredited by the Accreditation Council for Pharmacy Education (ACPE). Pharmacists should therefore not claim credits earned using UpToDate for maintaining licensure in States that exclusively require ACPE accredited programs. For any questions, pharmacists should check directly with their State’s Board of Pharmacy.
Regardless of State CE requirements, use of UpToDate is widely recognized by pharmacists as an effective method to develop and maintain state-of-art skills in clinical pharmacology and pharmacotherapy and to enhance the quality and impact of their drug therapy recommendations.
