Call for CCP portfolio assessors

January 13, 2015

Would you like a front-row view of what’s happening in pharmacy practice? Are you looking for ideas about how to shift your own practice? Would you like to play a larger role in your profession?

If you answered yes, you may be just who we’re looking for! We’re recruiting pharmacists to serve as assessors for the upcoming Continuing Competence Program audit.

You may work at your own pace; portfolios will be assigned to you in June and then you have until mid-September to submit your completed audits.

  • Be in good standing on the clinical register,
  • Have a minimum of one year of experience in direct patient care within the past three years, and
  • Not currently be or have been the subject of a disciplinary action or unresolved investigation.

Experience in assessment is not required, but is considered an asset.
