Continuing Professional Development


Continuing Professional Development (CPD) is a formative process which helps to continually update and improve the knowledge and skills of a pharmacist. CPD is an activity first engaged in as a pharmacy student, and which continues throughout the career of a registered pharmacist.

From the 1 June 2013, CPD became a statutory legal requirement for registration with the Pharmaceutical Society NI.

At the time of registration renewal each year, the pharmacist must complete a statutory declaration confirming their compliance with the legislative provisions and statutory requirements of the CPD Framework.

Registrants must adhere to the CPD Standards and the requirements articulated in the CPD Framework when planning and recording their CPD learning activity throughout the CPD year, and making a CPD submission by the 31 May each year.

All registrants must undertake CPD activities relevant to the safe and effective practice of pharmacy, and to their scope of practice.

Where possible registrants should record their CPD online.  To access the online recording system click on the CPD icon at the top right hand corner of the home page.
