APLF Congratulates APC for launching National Credentialing Program for Advanced Practice Pharmacists
The Australian Pharmacy Leaders Forum has congratulated the Australian Pharmacy Council for launching the National Credentialing Program for Advanced Practice Pharmacists.
This program is one that will credential pharmacists against the Advanced Pharmacy Practice Framework for Australia, which was developed by the pharmacy profession in 2012.
This is a leadership role that the APC is undertaking on behalf of the profession and the APLF values this independent credentialing program.
The Chair of APLF, Professor Iqbal Ramzan, says that the APC credentialing program is an independent means of recognising advanced practitioners which will enhance the standing of pharmacists in our profession.
It will also assist to assure the public that this formal recognition of the advanced practice of many pharmacists demonstrates the capability and capacity of the profession to work in new models of practice.
