As part of its Quality Assurance Program, the College has introduced practice assessments to evaluate an individual pharmacy professional’s performance in their Designated Practice Assessment (DPA) site.
Practice assessments are designed to help identify areas for professional development, and to maintain and enhance a registrant’s skills and knowledge to support better patient health outcomes. With an emphasis on educating, the goal of the practice assessments is to increase adherence to practice standards that have the greatest potential impact on patient and public safety.
This practice tool is home to a number of useful resources that will help pharmacy professionals to prepare for their practice assessment.
