Message from the Competence Director

April 14, 2015

Dear Pharmacists,

As you know, ACP rolled out a new Continuing Competence Program (CCP) on July 1, 2014. If you plan to renew your 2015/2016 pharmacy practice permit, you are required to complete the new program requirements by May 31, 2015.

To support you with understanding the new program, a number of tools and resources are available in the CCP portal: the CCP tutorial provides an in-depth look at the Continuing Competence Program, and the User Guide reviews the technical aspects and functions of the CCP portal. Since the roll-out of the program, we have created a number of additional resources outside of the CCP portal to help you with this new process and to succeed in the new program. This includes:

  • A number of articles providing tips on how to complete the program (available in ACP News);
  • A list of answers to frequently-asked-questions; and
  • A help guide to submitting your professional portfolio (new resource).

To help you with navigating through all the available resources, we have highlighted some of the articles and tools that you may find useful in this special edition of the Link. If you haven’t already, we recommend that you review some of the tips and FAQs prior to submitting your professional portfolio. If you require additional assistance, please feel free to contact a member of the competence team at competence@abpharmacy.ca. Alternatively, you may submit your questions using the Feedback/Questions button found in the CCP portal.

This program was designed to support you with your professional development and focuses on quality improvement. We hope you find the program to be a positive and rewarding experience! We look forward to receiving your professional portfolios!

Best regards,

Debbie Lee, BSc Pharm
Competence Director
