Quality Assurance Program

The Quality Assurance Program was introduced to help ensure competency of pharmacists and pharmacy technicians, and thereby protect the public. The program consists of three components:

  • Learning Portfolio
    • All pharmacists and pharmacy technicians are required to participate in continuing professional development and maintain a learning portfolio
  • Self-Assessment
    • All pharmacists in Part A of the register and all pharmacy technicians are required to do the self-assessment once in every five-year cycle, upon random selection
    • Voluntary annual self-assessment is recommended
  • Peer Review
    • About five per cent of eligible Part A pharmacists are randomly selected each year to come to the College for the Peer Review
