For pharmacists: continuing professional development and competency standards
Our educational and quality improvement activities are recognised by various pharmacy organisations as contributing towards a pharmacist’s continuing professional development. Participation in NPS activities may also assist pharmacists to address specific competency standards as set out in the Pharmaceutical Society of Australia Competency Standards for Pharmacists in Australia 2010. For more information on CPD and competency standards associated with each activity, visit the CPD section of the activity.
