Applying for accreditation of CPD
Under the auspices of the Australian Pharmacy Council the PSA may accredit continuing professional development for pharmacists that is eligible to be used as supporting evidence of continuing competence.
The accreditation of CPD activities (such as lectures, workshops, articles and conferences) provides an assurance to pharmacists that an activity has been reviewed for its educational quality and for its relevance to a pharmacist’s practice.
CPD providers’ responsibilities
As well as ensuring that their activity meets the standards for accreditation, CPD providers have a responsibility to:
- Promote and deliver the activity appropriately
- Maintain and submit records of participation
- Submit an evaluation summary
- Maintain suitable records for activity audit.
