Pennsylvania Child Abuse Recognition and Reporting

Effective January 1, 2015, all Pennsylvania pharmacists are required to complete training in child abuse recognition and reporting. Unfortunately, NWPSHP is unable to provide a program to satisfy this requirement, however, the University of Pittsburgh and the Pennsylvania Child Welfare Resource Center offers a free 3 hour online program available here. There is no ACPE credit associated with this program.
