You have questions? We have resources

August 23, 2011

The release of new standards on July 1 was a good reminder of how important it is to keep up-to-date on practice requirements. We at ACP appreciate the effort this takes and want to help you keep your practice safe and current. To that end, we maintain an extensive set of resources on the ACP website.

If you don’t find the answer to your question on the ACP website, you have other options. For non-urgent questions, you can email acpinfo@abpharmacy.ca  (please include your phone number). Your question will then be forwarded to the most appropriate ACP staff. You may also email an ACP staff member directly. The staff contact list is at Contact Us/ACP Staff.

If you question is more urgent, you may call ACP’s pharmacist-on-call. Each day, one of ACP’s pharmacists is on call to help with your practice puzzlers.   

For questions directly related to your pharmacy assessment, please contact the Professional Practice Consultant who conducted your assessment.

Working the ACP website:
 

Logging on to pharmacists.ab.ca may be the missing piece to many of your practice puzzles.

Check out the About ACP section to learn more about the college, your council, and ACP and APEX award winners.

Look through the For the Public section to help with answers to patient questions.

Peruse the information in Complaints Resolution to better understand the complaints process.

If you are looking for information about CEs, or want to refer to an article from a past issue of acpnews, The Link, Transition Times, heads up!, or DUE Quarterly, look under the News & Events tab.

The Registration & Licensure section takes the guesswork out of registering for or renewing your practice permit or licensing a pharmacy.

The Continuing Competence pages contain everything you need to know to complete your CPD plan, maintain your learning portfolio, or prepare for a competence assessment.

Click on the Practice Resources tab to find information about standards, provincial and federal legislation, drug schedules and practice guidelines. You’ll also find info sheets and posters you can use in your pharmacy.

Under the Prescriber Lists tab, you’ll not only find authorized prescriber information for many other health professions, but forgery alerts and a list of stolen of missing TPPs.
