  • COVID-19 RESOURCES FOR PHARMACISTS, TECHNICIANS, AND NURSES

    This is an unprecedented and challenging time for all of us. That’s why the freeCE team is working so hard to bring you the in-depth, accurate, and timely information you need to support both your pharmacy practice and your customers. In addition to the courses and resources shared below, we want to let you know about some other resources we can offer, as well as let you know what else freeCE is doing to help our employees, our partners, and our communities.

    Many of our customers—both those of freeCE and those of our sister company, Surgent (which provides continuing professional education to CPAs, attorneys, and other tax, accounting, and finance professionals)—are being called upon in new ways during this COVID-19 pandemic. Our freeCE members are helping to educate and support the medical care of COVID patients and their families, all while trying to keep themselves safe and healthy, just as our Surgent customers are helping many of their personal and business clients work through incredibly trying and complicated financial and legal issues caused by the pandemic.

    That’s why, in addition to providing you with the on-the-job educational content you need, freeCE is also doing what we can to support your well-being by offering free resources, including this self-care webinar (note that CE credits are not available for this webinar). We’ve also provided a number of free COVID-related resources including (2) free on-demand CE webinars on the impact of the pandemic, which educated more than 7400 Pharmacists and Pharmacy Technicians to date.

    Our home study webcast, Fatal Perceptions: Suicide Prevention Tools for Community Practice, is now available for free to anyone for the month of May, and is always available at no cost to our members. We’re also extremely proud that we’ve been able to make a sizable corporate donation to Americares, a non-profit organization providing protective supplies along with other critical support and resources for frontline health workers and health centers.

    For our own freeCE team, we continue to provide as much support as we can for our now fully remote workforce, including a stipend for employees to use in a local business of their choice or for any other personal expense, access to resources to support our team members’ physical and mental health during this crisis, and weekly virtual team happy hours to keep us all connected with live (though obviously virtual) entertainment and games.
