ACP, with support from Queen’s University, Office of Professional Development and Educational Scholarship, has developed a Licensee Education Program and Proprietor Self-Assessment. The program is designed to help pharmacists, licensees, and proprietors
The Licensee Education Program consists of two parts:
ACP encourages all licensees and any pharmacists interested in becoming a licensee to complete the Licensee Education Program. This enhanced knowledge will contribute to safe, effective, and appropriate pharmacy care for your patients. It will also help ensure expectations of pharmacy proprietors, licensees, and staff are met consistently. Pharmacy technicians are also welcome to enrol to gain a better understanding of the licensee’s roles and responsibilities.
The cost is consistent with other accredited learning and with the amount charged by other colleges for a similar accredited course. There is a cost associated with developing accredited education of this magnitude.
