On behalf of the CPNP Programming and Recertification Committees, I am pleased to announce the 2009 Annual Meeting showcasing Comprehensive Approaches to Improving Minds and Lives. This year’s meeting promises to uphold the tradition and mission of CPNP by offering programming to meet the diverse needs of our membership with the goal of improving the minds and lives of our patients.
On behalf of the Board and your dedicated peers on the Program and Recertification committees, I invite you to join your friends and colleagues at the 2009 Annual Meeting. We hope to see you in Jacksonville!

2009 Program Committee Chair
If you are a pharmacist, practitioner, educator, scientist, administrator, student, resident, fellow, nurse practitioner or other healthcare professional involved in the medication therapy management of psychiatric and/or neurological patients, we invite you to attend the CPNP Annual Meeting. Through this meeting, practitioners at all levels in the areas of neurology and psychiatry can grow and improve in their specialty areas. The Annual Meeting also benefits those pharmacists who play an ever-increasing role in assuring appropriate drug use, providing overall pharmacotherapy management and enhancing positive outcomes. More importantly, the Annual Meeting provides an opportunity for all attendees to interact and share experiences regarding their areas of common interest.
The College of Psychiatric and Neurologic Pharmacists is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Pharmacy Education as a provider of continuing pharmacy education. The 2009 Annual Meeting will provide up to 11 contact hours (1.1 CEUs) of continuing education credit from CPNP approved programming. The pre-meeting workshop is provided for an additional 4 contact hours (.4 CEUs). Additional ACPE contact hours will be available through up to five industry supported satellite symposia. Five contact hours (.5 CEUs) of Board Certified Psychiatric Pharmacist (BCPP) recertification programming is also available at the CPNP Annual Meeting
Participants must verify their attendance at the programming and complete evaluations and self-assessment questions in order to request ACPE credit. Statements of credit will be retrieved by participants online on the CPNP website within one month following the event. The CPNP Annual Meeting is structured to provide knowledge based education as defined in Accreditation Council for Pharmacy Education (ACPE) guidelines.
Business casual attire is recommended throughout the Annual Meeting.
For CPNP Beach Party (extra registration fee required), recommended attire is casual beachwear. The Beach Party will be held outside so a jacket is also recommended.
