Bylaws for Comment: Amendments to the Health Professions Act Bylaws, Schedule "C" to Recognize PharmAchieve's Drug Administration Course

The College is asking for your feedback on proposed amendments to the Health Professions Act (HPA) Bylaws, Schedule “C” – Recognized Education Programs, to incorporate an injection education program by PharmAchieve. 

Background

The College’s existing recognized programs for the certified practice of drug administration by injection and intranasal route educational programs are accredited by the Canadian Council on Continuing Education in Pharmacy (“CCCEP”). CCCEP is a national organization established to accredit continuing pharmacy education programs, and CCCEP accreditation is recognized by the pharmacy regulatory authorities in all Canadian provinces and territories.

PharmAchieve offers pharmacy exam preparation courses and continuing education courses. It offers an Injections and Immunizations Certificate Program for pharmacists, which is CCCEP accredited. The course is available in multiple cities in Canada, and includes an online individual-led component, an in-person component, and assessment.
