This year's CPEPPs will provide continuing education credits for pharmacists, physicians and nurses.  They are:

  • The Evolving Role of Managed Care and Oncology Pharmacy Management – Practical Recommendations for a Changing Environment.

AMCP's Expo Hall, open on Thursday, April 19 and Friday, April 20, will be the site of more than 100 companies and organizations displaying their latest innovations and services. The Expo Hall also will be the site of the Product Theaters, which provide an opportunity for attendees to hear late-breaking information on specific products, therapeutic areas and/or disease states in the presentations provided by company-designated presenters. Participants will gain immediate knowledge that can be incorporated into every day practice. 

In addition, the Expo Hall also will be feature a display of professional, student, resident and fellow Poster Presentations on Friday, April 20.
