These CPD guidelines encompass continuous education (CE), continuous professional education (CPE), continuous medical education (CME) and continuing professional development (CPD). They embrace a holistic view of pharmacy practitioners’ learning, with learning opportunities stretching
from didactic classroom-like settings to the point of practice or patient care. It is envisaged that based on their needs, pharmacy practitioners willbe able to tailor the learning process, settings, and curriculum to their requirements. Moreover, the use of information technology (IT) as one of the proposed approaches will provide pharmacy professionals with greater opportunities to engage in CPD and learn effectively.
