Recently we hosted an online symposium around the topic of diversion detection. We were honored to have four fantastic hosts for each one-hour session:
“A Comprehensive Drug Diversion Program: Top 10 Critical Components Every Institution Should Have” by Dr. Christopher Fortier, Pharm.D., FASHP, chief pharmacy officer, Boston, MA
“Nursing Perspective on Diversion and Role in a Controlled Substance Diversion Program and Committee” by Carol Purcell, MSN, RN, CNML, manager-diversion prevention program, University of Michigan, Ann Arbor, MI
“Anesthesia Perspective on Diversion and Role in a Controlled Substance Diversion Program and Committee” by Dr. Jeffery S. Vender, MD, emeritus, Harris Family Foundation chairman of the department of anesthesiology, NorthShore University Health System, Evanston, IL
“Evaluation and Selection of a Software Partner for a Comprehensive Diversion Detection Program” by Drew Luder,Pharm.D., MS, BCPS, system director of compliance and learning, Ohio Health Pharmacy Services, Columbus, OH
This was the first of what will become an ongoing series of similar education events, and we were thrilled to have high attendance numbers from beginning to end.

Instructions for CE Credit:
This event included the option for CE credit. Instructions for claiming CE as home study activities, as well as ACPE activity numbers are below.
1. Register as a user on the MPA website at michiganpharmacists.org (or just log in if you are already a registered user). Registering on the MPA website is a quick process and only requires first name, last name, e-mail address and password.
To complete the program evaluation and post-tests go to: https://www.michiganpharmacists.org/education/kitcheck-home
You will be required to provide your CPE Monitor e-profile identification number as well as date of birth (month and day only). This information is necessary to receive continuing education credit. If you do not provide this information, credit cannot be awarded. If you have not registered for CPE Monitor, please register at MyCPEMonitor.net.
Participants must complete an online activity evaluation and posttest with a passing score of 70 percent or greater no later January 21, 2021. This is 1 year after the program was presented.
Evaluations and posttests will not be available for completion and requests to process credit will not be accepted after this date.
2. Once the program evaluations and posttests are complete, you will receive a grade on the tests. You must pass post-tests questions with a grade of 70% or higher. If you do not achieve the required 70%, you will be given the option to take the posttest again.
3. Michigan Pharmacists Association will upload credit to your CPE Monitor record within two weeks of the online evaluation and post-test closing. After credit has been uploaded, you can log into your CPE Monitor account and print statements of credit.
NOTE: Guidelines established by the Accreditation Council for Pharmacy Education prohibit MPA from issuing credit more than 60 days after the activity for any reason; therefore, participants are encouraged to review their CPE Monitor record to ensure credit has been submitted and errors can be resolved prior to the 60-day deadline.
