#WePHoz - Thursday 25th August 2016 8pm (E. Australia Standard Time) CPD Planning - What's changed with AHPRA's new requirements?

If you haven't joined in a tweet chat before it's very simple.    Here's a guide





 Chat Details

 

Hosted by WePharmerOZ using #WePHoz

Greetings, Aussie pharmacists and international friends: welcome to the #WePhOz community!

@WePharmerOz are hosting our next Tweet chat using #wephoz on Thursday 25th of August at 8pm EST.

For this tweet chat, we will be talking all about "CPD Planning - What's changed with AHPRA's new requirements?"


Continuing Professional Development (CPD) is an important part of every professional's career, especially in the health sector.

AHPRA recently introduced new requirements for planning future CPD based on a pharmacist's areas of practice. This helps a pharmacist to identify their learning needs, and it prevents the bad habits of putting off CPD until the September deadline.

Come along to our tweet chat and discuss the changes with other pharmacists. The Pharmaceutical Society of Australia will also have a representative tweeting on the night, explaining how being a member of PSA can help you easily meet your CPD planning needs. 

Questions to consider on the night

Have you made your CPD plan yet?

Do you know how to identify your areas of practice, and which elements require focus?

Do you know the Standards and Individual Elements that AHPRA has identified?? 

How do you record and keep track of your CPD needs?


Join us on August 25th where we can discuss the topics among those who are interested!

@DRugby56's question sounds like a good place to start - what are your thoughts on the new CPD plan requirements? #wephoz
@sar_sinclair
25 August 2016 20:09
Does anyone have a CPD learning plan? Mine evolves, constantly #wephoz
@KennyPharmPhD
25 August 2016 20:09
Fun fact: the cpd plan idea was around in Tasmania before AHPRA came along! #wephoz
@jandalsoz
25 August 2016 20:09
@DRugby56 @AJPEditor @pharmacy_news #wephoz yes I have. Mixed comments on the new CPD requirements. Many pharmacists still unaware of change
@KennyPharmPhD
25 August 2016 20:09
@sar_sinclair yes - it's meant to evolve. I'm sure @jandalsoz can talk more on this? #wephoz

@sar_sinclair mine evolves constantly too. Informal based on identified skills I need, advanced practice helped with that #wephoz

25 August 2016 20:12
To ensure everyone is on the same page, @jandalsoz - could you give us a very brief 'nutshell' overview of what the CPD plan is? #wephoz

@KennyPharmPhD

@AmyTPage
25 August 2016 20:31
