Dear NH Licensed Pharmacist:

Due to the COVID-19 State of Emergency, and as outlined in Exhibit H to Emergency Order #29, the Office of Professional Licensure and Certification (OPLC) is waiving Continuing Education (CE) requirements for all OPLC licensees renewing from March 13, 2020 to December 31, 2020.  As all NH licensed pharmacists are due to renew by December 31, 2020 – CE requirements are waived for all pharmacists this renewal cycle.  Now that pharmacist licenses are on a biennial renewal schedule, you will therefore not be required to submit any CE documentation for calendar years 2019 – 2020 when you complete your online pharmacist renewal this November-December 2020.  Pharmacists must again begin earning CE as of January 1, 2021.

Continuing Education Programs in 2020!

This vicious virus is keeping all of us very busy with our home lives and our work lives. It’s gets to be a bit much doesn’t it.  Normalcy is gone for now and that is frustrating.

Our lives have been disrupted like never before. Although New Hampshire CE credits are not required in 2020 as per The State of New Hampshire Governors Emergency Order #29 Exhibit Hyou may still have interest in this presentation.

Perhaps it is a wise move to keep our minds sharp, and perhaps we might want to stay involved with our professional community. Maybe it’s healthy to professionally engage in conversation even if it’s virtually. 

If you are licensed in other states that still have a 2020 requirement, consider attending this ONLINE Virtual CE program

Expanding Access to COVID-19 Testing by Licensed Pharmacists - Emergency Order #47

Remdesivir Receives Emergency-Use Authorization  
The search for an effective treatment for COVID-19 has a leading candidate— remdesivir. Widespread media coverage is sure to have patients asking pharmacists when it will be available and whether they can get it, even though it is only administered IV in hospitals. Still, it’s a bright spot in a time and on a subject that has had very little good news. Here’s the latest on trials for the drug and what the emergency authorization means for patients.

2019 Data Compliance Audit 

The Harm Reduction Education and Technical Assistance Project at the University of New Hampshire, in response to the opioid epidemic, engages with community-based organizations and healthcare providers who connect with people who use drugs and provides academic detailing on evidence-based practices to reduce drug-related harms in areas throughout New Hampshire.

The project is funded by the New Hampshire Department of Health and Human Services, Bureau of Infectious Disease.  Pharmacy practices that reduce drug related harm are even more important during the COVID-19 pandemic to ease the burden on healthcare and emergency resources.
