 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 has commenced mapping our new CPD activities to the 2016 competencies as part of our CPD accreditation process.
