Research output: Contribution to conferenceAbstract

Abstract

In common with other healthcare professions, pharmacy faces important workforce demands if it is to continue to have the capacity and capability to respond to an ever-changing healthcare environment. Challenges of development, distribution and responsible use of medicines can only be met with an adaptable pharmacy workforce, that fully deploys its knowledge, skills and abilities in collaboration with other health stakeholders.

To respond to these challenges, The Society of Hospital Pharmacists of Australia (SHPA) has developed and implemented a structured, formalised, supported and accredited national residency program for early-career hospital pharmacists beginning in 2017. It is a two-year professional development program designed to support pharmacist practice towards competence and performance aligned with the Advanced Pharmacy Practice Framework for Australia at Transition Level.
