CCCEP Volunteers

CCCEP engages about 100 volunteer pharmacists and technicians to serve on Learning Review Panels. Each Learning Review Panel is composed of five volunteer reviewers. Pharmacist panels review learning activities for pharmacists and technician panels review learning activities targeted for technicians.

The Learning Review Panel is an essential part of the CCCEP accreditation review process. Each learning activity submitted for CCCEP accreditation is sent to a Learning Review Panel. The panel reviews the learning activity, identifies issues and concerns and makes a recommendation on the accreditation of the learning activity.

Benefits of Being a Learning Review Panelist

The main benefits of being a learning review panelist are:

  • The opportunity to review new continuing pharmacy educational programs on a number of different topics; and
  • The opportunity to contribute to your profession by supporting the professional development of your colleagues in the profession of pharmacy.

In addition, CCCEP offers the following benefits to Learning Review Panelists:

  • A small annual honorarium to cover some of the printing and other costs that you may incur as part of doing the reviews, and as an expression of our appreciation.
  • An honorarium for doing a Fast Track Review in recognition of the shorter than normal in which this review needs to be completed.
  • The Continuing Education Credits (CEU) for each program reviewed, based on the CEUs for that program. Many pharmacy professionals find this to be the greatest benefit. These CEUs can be used in the Panelists own Learning Portfolio.


The purpose of the Learning Review Panel for CCCEP Accreditation is to:

  1. Obtain feedback on the relevance of the learning material to pharmacy practice
  2. Obtain feedback about the overall learning experience and educational value
  3. Ensure that the presentation of content in the program is balanced and free of bias, and
  4. Assess contact hours for the purpose of assigning CEU credits (Independent Study Programs only)

Learning Review Panels do not assess the content of the program. This is the role of the expert reviewer. However, if a panelist has concerns regarding the content they may note their concern.
