  • Practice of dispensing opioids
  • Immunizations
  • Vet (large and small) animal pharmaceuticals
  • Drug interactions with CBD oil/medical marijuana

  • Advances in obesity managment
  • Incorporation of eCare plans into workflow
  • Anxiety meds - how to treat without prescribing benzoazipines
  • Patient safety (The prevention of healthcare errors, and the elimination or mitigation of patient injury caused by healthcare errors. Healthcare errors may be errors of commission, omission, or execution. Errors may be made by any member of the healthcare team in any healthcare setting.)

We are also interested in programs related to:

  • Preceptor development for residency programs


Program Expectations

All CPE programs must comply with PPA and ACPE standards. Guidance on program development can be found here, and details on ACPE requirements and what is expected of presenters can be found on the Speaker FAQ Sheet. Interested presenters are strongly encouraged to review the FAQs prior to submitting a proposal.


Potential speakers should also be familiar with PPA's Commercial Support and Conflict of Interest Policy, PPA's guidelines for student involvement, and understand PPA's expense/reimbursement limitations.


Speakers selected to present CPE programs at PPA Conferences may be selected to present their program again after the conference as an encore webinar. Presenters will work with the CPE Administrator to schedule and prepare for this. Webinars will be recorded and provided as on-demand home study CEs.


Program proposals must be submitted no later than November 1, 2019.



Programs will be selected based on merit and PPA's desire for programming in the selected topic. Presenters will be notified no later than November 15, 2019 as to whether their proposal has been selected. Please be aware that even fantastic program proposals may not be selected due to scheduling restrictions and similar proposals.

If selected, PPA's CPE Administrator will work with you to determine the final details of the program such as title, objectives, target audience, activity type, and assessment tools based on the details provided in your application. Refusal to make requested changes may result in the cancellation of a program.

 Comments, questions, and concerns should be directed to Linsley Gentile, CE and Conference Manager at lgentile@papharmacists.com or (717) 234-6151 x2.
