PSA Refresher Training

PSA practical refresher workshops are recommended for pharmacists who wish to refresh their knowledge and competencies.

 

For QLD, pharmacists must ensure that they undertake yearly Continuing Professional Development (CPD) in the area of immunisation to ensure they are up to date in their practice. Where the time elapsed since initial practical training is more than 12 months and where a pharmacist has not administered at least two (2) vaccines in the preceding 12 months via either the intramuscular or subcutaneous routes, practical refreshment of the unpractised injection techniques (intramuscular, subcutaneous or both) must be undertaken as part of the CPD. In monitoring compliance with this QPV standard, officers authorised under the Queensland Health Act 1937 may request evidence that CPD requirements are met and that first aid, CPR and anaphylaxis qualifications are current.

 

For other states and territories, please contact your local state for upcoming refresher training.
