OPEN ADMITTANCE OF PROVIDERS

CCCEP believes in open admittance for continuing pharmacy education program providers. Therefore, any individual, group or organization may register to be a CCCEP program provider.

Incorporated and non-incorporated organizations register in one of two categories of program providers:

  •  Full Privilege Provider
  •  Limited Privilege Provider

FULL-PRIVILEGE PROVIDER

A Full-Privilege Program Provider may be involved in all aspects of the development, design, delivery, evaluation, logistics and promotion of a continuing pharmacy education program. They may work with a limited-privilege provider through a sponsorship or collaborative agreement in accordance with the Sponsorship Code of Practice.

LIMITED-PRIVILEGE PROVIDER

A Limited-Privilege Program Provider is an organization whose activities are limited so that their ability to influence or control the content of a continuing pharmacy education program is minimized.

A Limited-Privilege Provider is any entity that is:

  •  A commercial enterprise, excluding direct service and education organizations;
  •  A special interest entity; or
  •  Deemed by CCCEP not eligible to be a full-privilege provider.

Limited-Privilege Providers MAY:

  •  Deliver any leraning activity, including contracting the services of an independent third-party facilitator for a Live learning activity and hosting an Independent Study learning activity on a website owned by the limited-privilege provider, except the limited-privilege providers corporate site or a product related site;
  •  Provide logistics (organize and promote) for any Live learning activity;
  •  Conduct the participant evaluations of a learning activity;
