Stretch marks - identification and treatment


The College is pleased to announce the availability of accredited CPD on the identification and treatment of stretch marks developed by Dr Brett MacFarlane whose PhD areas of interest included the physiological and biochemical aspects of dermal membranes and the formulation of dermal products.

The CPD covers stretch mark development, prevalence in at risk populations, identifying people at risk of developing stretch marks and the evidence for stretch mark prevention and treatment. This CPD is available to all pharmacists at no charge.

ADVANCING PRACTICE

 2016 National Competency Standards


Following a comprehensive review of the 2010 framework, the new competency standards for Australian Pharmacists are now available.

The 2016 framework consists of five domains covering Professionalism and ethics, Communication and collaboration, Medicines management and patient care, Leadership and management and Education and research. The Leadership and management domain was significantly expanded and includes two standards which are universally applicable to all pharmacists regardless of their role or place of practice.

The first two domains, Professionalism and ethics and Communication and collaboration, also apply across all areas of professional endeavour.

The 2012 Advanced Pharmacy Practice Framework has been integrated into the 2016 framework.

When developing their CPD plan, pharmacists are encouraged to use the 2016 framework as soon as possible; in particular, for the 2017-8 CPD year.
