The Advanced Pharmacy Practice Framework (APPF) was developed through profession-wide consultation and endorsed by participating organisations including the Pharmacy Board of Australia.  It is accepted that advanced level pharmacy practice in Australia will be formally assessed against the APPF.  Therefore, while the Expert professional practice section is intended to be tailored depending on the area of advanced practice under consideration, it is important that the broader structure and detail of the APPF is not altered.

If you have used, referenced or adapted the APPF, please include appropriate acknowledgement of the source.
