NAPRA wants to hear from you!

December 13, 2023
Pharmacy technicians and pharmacists are invited to provide input on competencies for entry to practice in Canada.

The National Association of Pharmacy Regulatory Authorities (NAPRA) invites pharmacy technicians and pharmacists across Canada to participate in a survey to help validate a new draft of the entry-to-practice competencies for pharmacy professionals in Canada.

This survey is part of a project to review and update the Professional Competencies for Pharmacists and Pharmacy Technicians at Entry to Practice in Canada to ensure that they clearly reflect the competencies required for safe and effective practice of pharmacy professionals.

The survey process will take approximately 30-45 minutes to complete. In appreciation of participants’ efforts, NAPRA is entering participants’ names into a draw for $300. You are eligible to participate if

  • you are a practising pharmacist or pharmacy technician in Canada who provides care directly to patients,
  • you supervise the work of practising pharmacists or pharmacy technicians in Canada,
  • you provide education to pharmacist or pharmacy technician students in Canada, or
  • you work in the regulation of pharmacy practice in Canada.

Regulated members are encouraged to take the opportunity to consider the proposed document and provide your comprehensive feedback about each competency statement in addition to providing rankings, as your feedback will be used to establish the validity of the changes that are being considered.

There are separate surveys for pharmacists and pharmacy technicians, which can be accessed via NAPRA’s website. The deadline to participate is Wednesday, January 3, 2024.
