Section III: Acknowledgements

Development of Program Content & Non-Commercialism

CPhA requires continuing education programs to be developed independent from commercial interests and that educational content by presented with full disclosure and equitable balance.  Please check each box below to acknowledge your agreement with each of the following:

  • All presentation content and materials will be carefully examined to ensure the presentation will not be misinterpreted as promoting or appearing to endorse a specific commercial drug, device, product and/or service.
  • Advertisements and/or promotional materials cannot be displayed or distributed in the educational space immediately before, during or after a continuing pharmacy education activity.
  • Representatives of commercial interests are prohibited from engaging in sales or promotional activities while in the space or place of continuing pharmacy education activity.
  • Educational materials, such as slides, abstracts and handouts, cannot contain any advertising, trade name or a product-group message.  This also pertains to company names, logos, etc. – please refrain from using them in slide content, in headers and/or footers and on handouts.
  • The content or format of a continuing pharmacy education activity or its related materials must promote improvements or quality in healthcare and not a specific proprietary business interest of a commercial interest.
  • Presentations must give a balanced view of the therapeutic options.  Use of generic names will contribute to this impartiality.  If program materials or content includes trade names, where available, trade names from several companies should be used and not just trade names from a single company.
  • Speaker(s) must disclose all relevant financial relationships with any commercial interest within the past 12 months.
Do you have any real or perceived financial interests or conflicts related to this program/topic? If yes, please explain below. *

CPhA’s CE Bank *CPhA created an online “CE Bank” to facilitate the provision of live continuing education to pharmacy professionals throughout California. This online database allows speakers to add programs that they are interested in delivering, while also allowing pharmacy organizations to search the database for programs that they would like to host in their area. To view CPhA’s CE Bank, go to www.cpha.com  click on “CE/Events” in the top menu bar  click on “CE Bank for Locals” on the left side of the webpage. In the event that we are unable to invite you to speak at Exchange, would you be interested in having your program made available to local associations and other pharmacy organizations through CPhA’s CE Bank? *
