FAQ

What if I can’t attend every session?
A recording of the educational presentations will be available on our online CE platform the week following the conclusion of the live session. Access to these recordings is included in your conference registration fee.


How do I access the virtual conference?
Approximately one week before the conference, you will receive an email from “ACVP Veterinary Pharmacy Conference <no-reply@pheedloop.com>” that includes your link to access the conference’s virtual event portal. Through this portal you will be able to access session materials, interact with other attendees using text and video chat, and view the presentations.

Review our Attendee Guide for the Veterinary Pharmacy Conference and avoid technical issues by testing Zoom on your device prior to the day of the event.

Our virtual event portal is best viewed on a desktop or laptop. Using Google Chrome is recommended for the best experience. While the sessions may be accessed on a tablet or phone, some features my not be available. For more technical details, including troubleshooting, click here.


How Do I Participate in the Sessions?
It’s easy! Log into the virtual event portal. You’ll receive an email with your link approximately one week before the conference begins. A few minutes before the session, click on the session title in the schedule list. You will enter a virtual waiting room.

At the top, you will see the session information, and if you scroll down below the video, you’ll find speaker names, which you can click on for more information, a more detailed description, and session files and handouts.

When the session is scheduled to take place, it will appear in this space—you do not need to leave the virtual event platform in order to participate in the sessions. Until the designated time, you will see a video that either indicated that “The session will be starting soon” or thanks the session sponsor.  You may need to allow audio for your computer.

How many credit hours are available at the 2021 Veterinary Pharmacy Conference?
The 2021 Veterinary Pharmacy Conference is approved for up to 7 (0.7 CEUs) of continuing education. The American College of Apothecaries, Inc. is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Pharmacy Education as a provider of continuing pharmacy education. All sessions carrying the ACPE program number are approved for continuing education credit.


How do I receive my CE credits?
Lecture Panda is the online platform we are using to provide access to post-conference evaluations, recorded sessions, and to automatically upload your completed CE to ACPE’s CPE monitor. You will need to have your NABP number in order to register as a pharmacist or pharmacy technician and receive CE credit on Lecture Panda (options are available for Canadian and international registrants). You will need to register on Lecture Panda using the same email address that you used to register for the conference.

At the end of each session that is approved for CE credit, a code will appear on the screen. You will need to write this down to use to unlock the corresponding evaluation for that session in Lecture Panda. Please note that codes are not case sensitive.

Attendees are required to complete an evaluation form at the completion of the program. CE will be uploaded automatically to the CPE monitor when attendees submit their credits through Lecture Panda. CE credit is only applied to those sessions you attend and/or watch on demand.

After completing the course evaluation form for each session, click the large green “Submit credits” button and confirm that the status of your credit(s) is “complete.” Your CPE credit should appear in CPE Monitor within 24 hours and it is the attendee’s responsibility to check the CPE Monitor to confirm that all credits were received. We strongly recommend that all CE activities be completed within 14 days of the end of the conference. You must submit your CE through Lecture Panda by the deadline in order to receive credit for the live sessions.


Will I receive a certificate?
Once your CE is successfully uploaded to the CPE monitor for each session, you will be able to download and print a certificate for that session from Lecture Panda. Participants who are not eligible for CE will be able to download a statement of completion.


Will the sessions be available on demand?
Registrants will receive a recording link to access the sessions on demand approximately one week after the conference.


Can I purchase individual sessions on demand?
Recordings will be available to purchase on demand following the conference. Prices have not yet been set. They will be available as individual sessions and/or bundle package.


Do I have to attend all the sessions?
The 2021 Veterinary Pharmacy Conference is flexible. You can attend LIVE or watch on demand after the conference.


Will there be meeting handouts for the sessions?
Attendees can view or download pdfs of the presentations and session handouts under the “Files” heading of each CE session within the virtual event platform.


What about networking? 
We know that catching up with old friends and making new connections is an important part of the conference experience, so we’ve added a pre-conference “Coffee with Colleagues” each morning before the first session and a Friday night Virtual Happy Hour.
