PPDC Communique 7 March 2016

7 March 2016

The Pharmacy Practitioner Development Committee (PPDC) met last month to further discuss feedback received from its Member organisations in relation to the review of the National competency standards framework for pharmacists in Australia.

A consultation paper is expected to be released in mid-March 2016 and will be publicly available for all members of the pharmacy profession as well as interested external stakeholders to provide comment. The consultation period is expected to run until mid-April 2016.

The PPDC has also been discussing the implementation of the new competency standards framework, particularly around what tools and resources would best support the profession.
