Continuing Education Programs

Rx for Change provides a variety of web-based continuing education programs. These offerings vary over time, based on our resources, however all continuing education units are provided at no cost. We recommend a minimum of 2.0 hours of CE for licensed health professionals who are making medication recommendations. Some states require prescribing pharmacists to complete a designated training; check with your Board of Pharmacy for state-specific requirements.

More intensive Tobacco Treatment Specialist programs are offered by other institutions: Attud.org (fees apply)

If you are interested in attending a live webinar or would like a tailored training provided for a large group (or in person), please contact us at khudmon@purdue.edu.
