Courses: Foundation programme: Practice-based pharmacists

The PBPFP is underpinned by a series of workshops and case-based discussions to support the development of the required competencies. Pharmacists undertaking the programme should attend all of the workshops and having completed each workshop, should record a CPD cycle to reflect on their learning. Completed CPD cycles should be uploaded to the portfolio and mapped to the relevant competence(s).
