How do I know if a CE activity covers sterile compounding?

To qualify as sterile compounding, a CE activity must contain subject matter related to compounding sterile preparations. 

CE Activities from ACPE-accredited CE Providers:

For CE activities from ACPE-accredited CE providers, an ACPE Universal Activity Number (UAN) is assigned to the CE activity. The ACPE UAN is typically listed in the CE activity description and in the statement of credit or certificate of completion provided by the CE provider after completing the CE activity. Based on the ACPE UAN, you can determine the topic of the CE activity.

The following is an example of a ACPE UAN with a compounding topic designator:
