For assessment purposes, IDSAP content is grouped into learning modules. Each release consists of 3–4 modules; each module contains 2–3 review-style chapters or 2–3 electronic features. The Self-Assessment Questions in each module are accessed from the My Products section of your My Account page. Please note the following:
- Only completed tests are eligible for credit; no partial or incomplete tests will be processed.
- You may complete one or all available modules for credit.
- Tests may not be submitted more than one time.
BCIDP Recertification Credit:
To be eligible to receive BCIDP recertification credit from an IDSAP module, the required posttest must be submitted within the 6-month period after the book’s release. Test deadlines are listed on the first page of every release. The passing point to earn BCIDP recertification credit is based on an expert analysis of the assessment items in each posttest module. Any posttest submitted before the BCIDP test deadline that meets this passing point will earn BCIDP recertification credits. These credits will be assigned as of the date of test submission and reported within 48 hours to BPS. For statements of recertification credit, visit www.bpsweb.org.
All participants must have a Board of Pharmacy Specialties (BPS) board certification credential number, BPS ID Number, and a BPS expiration date on file with ACCP for reporting purposes. To verify or update this information in your ACCP account, visit Licensure/Certification. Be sure to save your changes at the bottom of the page.
Questions regarding the number of hours required for BCIDP recertification should be directed to BPS at (202) 946-5026 or www.bpsweb.org. The ACCP Recertification Dashboard is a free online tool that can track recertification credits as they are earned through ACCP and schedule new opportunities for credits from upcoming ACCP professional development programs.
Continuing Pharmacy Education (CPE) Credit:
The American College of Clinical Pharmacy is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Pharmacy Education as a provider of continuing pharmacy education.
The American Society of Health-System Pharmacists is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Pharmacy Education as a provider of continuing pharmacy education with Commendation.
All IDSAP releases are application-based activities.
To receive ACPE CPE credit for a IDSAP module, a posttest must be submitted within 3 years after the book's release. Test deadlines are listed on the first page of every release. The passing point to earn ACPE CPE credit for a IDSAP module is 50%. Any posttest submitted before the ACPE deadline that scores 50% or greater will be awarded the appropriate CPE. These credits will be assigned as of the date of test submission and reported within 48 hours. For statements of CPE credit, visit www.mycpemonitor.net.
Posttest answers: The explained answers – with rationale and supporting references – will be posted 2 weeks after the BCIDP test deadline and will be available to anyone who has either (1) submitted a posttest or (2) waived the right to receive credit from a posttest (see below). Explained answers will be posted on the My Products section of the My Account page where posttests are accessed.
Waiving Credits: To access the explained answers without submitting a posttest, sign in to your My Account page, select the IDSAP book, and click on the waiver link for that module. By completing the waiver form for a module, you waive the opportunity to receive CPE credit for that module. After you submit a waiver, you will see a link to the PDF file that contains the answers for the module you waived. Answers will be available starting 2 weeks after the BCIDP test deadline.
National Association of Boards of Pharmacy - CPE Monitor Service
Provided through the collaborative efforts of the National Association of Boards of Pharmacy (NABP), the Accreditation Council for Pharmacy Education (ACPE), and ACPE-accredited providers, the CPE Monitor Service allows you to electronically keep track of continuing pharmacy education (CPE) credits from ACPE-accredited providers. ACPE-accredited providers, like ACCP, are responsible for transmitting this information to NABP to be stored in the CPE Monitor system. Statements of credit will be available at CPE Monitor, nabp.pharmacy/cpe-monitor-service/, within 2-3 business days after completion of this posttest. For more information on CPE Monitor please visit nabp.pharmacy/cpe-monitor-service/.
To transfer these credits to CPE Monitor on your behalf your NABP e-Profile ID Number and date of birth must be listed on your ACCP account. To verify or update this information in your ACCP account, visit Licensure/Certification. Be sure to save your changes at the bottom of the page.
Some international pharmacists do not use the CPE Monitor service. To verify or update this information in your ACCP account, visit Licensure/Certification. Check the box “I am an international pharmacist or I am not licensed to practice in the United States, and do not have an NABP e-Profile ID.” Be sure to save your changes at the bottom of the page.
