Continuing Professional Development (CPD)
ERUDIO PRO VITA || EDUCATION FOR LIFE
In order to be most effective and provide the best patient care, health professionals need to invest in educational opportunities that give them up to date knowledge and skills. It is important that they learn about advances in research and treatment in their fields (and related fields) in order to obtain and maintain up-to-date knowledge. This optimizes patient care.
In the United States of America, the United Kingdom, the Netherlands and several other countries, private agencies provide CPD programs for qualified pharmacists to give the practicing professional an opportunity to learn. For example PAOFarmacie in the Netherlands stimulates professional development of pharmacists by providing different CPD courses within the year. There is a need to ensure that pharmacists in Ghana also have the avenue and unlimited access to continuing education throughout the year regardless of where they live.
The CPD programme comprises a series of modules in different competencies of the profession. It is run throughout the year and is certified by the Pharmacy Council of Ghana. A wide variety of certified courses are available for study. The minimum number of study credits required for re-licensure can be attained by taking any of our package courses. To continually improve our CPD’s, a yearly forum to assess the training needs of healthcare professionals is held in collaboration with relevant stakeholders in order to develop comprehensive but relevant courses of study for Pharmacists.
