Before May 31, 2015, all pharmacists on the clinical register must learn about and complete the requirements of the new Continuing Competence Program (CCP) to be eligible to renew their practice permit for the following registration year. Pharmacists can access all CCP materials, including the tutorial, through the CCP web portal on the ACP website.
To complete the new Continuing Competence Program, all pharmacists on the clinical register must:
- Complete at least 15 CEUs during the CE cycle (June 1-May 31) and document each activity on a Learning Record.
- Implement at least one CEU worth of learning into your practice and document this on an Implementation Record.
- Complete any prescribed learning assigned by the Competence Committee.
- For the 2014/15 CE cycle, the prescribed learning is the web-based tutorial describing the Continuing Competence Program. This tutorial will provide an in-depth look at the revised competence program and will focus on how to complete an Implementation Record. Through examples, you will explore different types of implementation objectives and gain a clear understanding of what is expected to successfully complete this program. The CCP tutorial is available in the Self-Assessment/Prescribed Activities section of the CCP web portal.
Don’t delay – review the tutorial today and familiarize yourself with the new Continuing Competence Program.
