The meeting will be available exclusively online to attendees in a live and virtual format.
Many other pharmacy conferences have traded in-person shows for a virtual experience as a result of the coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) pandemic. The American Society of Health-System Pharmacists recently announced plans to hold the 2020 Midyear Clinical Meeting in December as an all-virtual experience. ThoughtSpot, the annual conference and trade show hosted by Good Neighbor Pharmacy and AmerisourceBergen for independent community pharmacies and long-term care pharmacies, will also take place in an immerse virtual environment on September 15, 2020.
According to NCPA, the conference will continue to include “programs focused on answering hard-hitting questions on getting paid for the care pharmacists provide.”
Registration for the event opens August 28. For those who have already registered for the live meeting, there are options for refunding the registration fee. NCPA will be sending information via email.
