This Activity Meets the New CE Requirement for Pharmacists

Texas State Board of Pharmacy (TSBP) announces the adoption of amendments to Board Rule 295.8, which now requires one hour of CE on opioid abuse for pharmacist license renewal.  This rule will take effect January 1, 2019.

Texas Pharmacists may meet this requirement by taking online CE courses at UT Austin.  CE activities designed to meet this new requirement will also be included in all UT CE live events this coming year.  Online CE activities are also available through our online catalogue.
