Pharmacists: less than 4 months to complete your professional portfolios!
February 10, 2016
The May 31st deadline may seem far away now, but your professional portfolios will be due sooner than you think!
If you’ve already been working on your professional portfolio we encourage you to keep the momentum going. If you haven’t started yet, now is a good time to take the first step. Wherever you are in the process the Competence Team is here to support you along the way.
In order to renew your practice permit, you must complete the following Continuing Competence Program (CCP) requirements by May 31, 2016:
- Complete the Jurisprudence Self-Assessment - available in the Self-Assessment/Prescribed Activities section of the CCP portal
- Complete learning activities – Complete at least 15 CEUs during the CE cycle (June 1, 2015 to May 31, 2016) and document each activity on a Learning Record
- Put your learning to use – Implement a minimum of one CEU worth of learning into your practice and document this on an Implementation Record (you only need to complete one record)
As part of the Continuing Competence Program, pharmacists and pharmacy technicians are asked to state and achieve an implementation objective. An implementation objective is where you describe how you will apply your learning to practice. This is different from a learning objective, where you describe what you will learn. To assist you with writing an implementation objective, please review the How to Write SMART Objectives tool in the Competence section of the ACP website.Access all program materials in the CCP portal. For more information on the program, please refer to CCP requirements and/or contact a member of the Competence Team.
