Complimentary CPD on nutrition in pregnancy


What impacts do nutrition and nutrient level have on pregnancy outcomes?

Nutrition is increasingly being recognised as playing a key role in health outcomes, particularly when pregnant or breastfeeding.

The College has partnered with Bayer Australia and ITK magazine to develop a comprehensive CPD module for pharmacists on the key consequences of nutrition and nutrient levels on pregnancy outcomes.

The module covers the changes in nutrient intake necessary to provide a healthy pregnancy and baby, and the evidence base for recommendation of nutrient supplementation in pregnancy.

Enrolment in the module is open to ALL pharmacists.

ADVANCING PRACTICE

 Using pharmacist competencies in your 2017/18 Learning Plan


The College recommends that members use the 2016 Pharmacist Competencies when designing their learning plan for the 2017-18 CPD year. 

The structure of the new competencies has changed from the previous 2010 version.

The 2016 competencies have a greater emphasis on pharmacists as leaders, communication skills and their role in improving patient health literacy.

The College maps new CPD activities to both the 2010 and the 2016 competencies as part of our CPD accreditation process.
