The WSPA New Drugs, New Laws Seminar has been a perennial favorite for years! Busy pharmacists and technicians appreciate this one-day session with both clinical and regulatory updates for practice, in addition to many opportunities to network and connect with peers.

New Drugs New Laws evolves each year to meet your needs. This year’s agenda has the popular New Drugs Session by Dr. Terri Levien again complimented by the addition of New Guidelines Review by Dr. Levi Lancaster and Dr. Steven Elrod from Providence St. Peter Family Medicine. Then focus will shift from clinical to legal and regulatory. PQAC staff will review important regulatory changes over the last year. Then a panel of pharmacists will review what you should know about the proposed new PQAC rules, which may go in effect as soon as July 2020. Next, Dr. Julie Akers will review important federal and state updates. Finally, back by popular demand, Bill Fassett will wrap up the day by leading a discussion of pertinent case laws for pharmacy practice.

Online CE platform

Lecture Panda (LP) is the new CE platform. LP can be used to view presentation materials, respond to speaker questions via an audience response system, claim CE credit and evaluate sessions.


An email with a link to LecturePanda will be sent to you late January, so that you can create your profile. A NABP# and date of birth is required for pharmacist and technicians. Once you create your profile, you will receive an email from LP. Please keep this email as this will be how you access your profile again. This link will connect you to the audience response system, upload CE credit and download presentation materials.


Your profile in LP allows you access to the “Materials” section to download and print presentations before the meeting. Printed handouts or presentations will not be provided at the Meeting. Please print your own materials if you would like a copy in hand. Also, please bring your own notetaking materials including pen and paper or laptop/tablet.


CE Requirement – Secret Codes and Online Evaluation

In order to receive credit, participants must go online to submit the secret codes and evaluation for each CE activity attended. At the end of each CE presentation, participants will be provided with the secret code. Participants will document the code on the Activity Description and CE Tracking Form. To receive credit for the activity, participants must follow the LP Registration and Upload Instructions provided at the meeting. WSPA staff will be available throughout the meeting to assist you with the CE upload. Participants will only have 60 days from the activity date to upload CE credits in order to receive credit. The CE credit will then be uploaded to the CPE Monitor and attendance of CE can be tracked through that system. It will be your responsibility to check the CPE Monitor within the 60 days to confirm that all of your CEs have been uploaded.


In order to process CE credits, participants must provide the correct NABP e-Profile ID number along with their birth month and day (MMDD format). The NABP e-Profile ID number is a six to eight-digit number, and it is NOT your license number, NPI number or store NABP#. If you need to verify your number or have not yet registered for one, please visit


Technician or Pharmacist Accredited CE

The CPE programs accredited for pharmacists will have a designation of “P” next to the ACPE number. CPE activities accredited for technicians will have a “T”. For example, “ACPE # 130-000-17-045-L04 P&T” is accredited for both pharmacists and technicians. The agenda at a glance will also have an * next to the title that is only pharmacist accredited.
