WITH more than 100 res­i­dents lo­cated in 30 ac­cred­ited hos­pi­tal and health ser­vice sites for the So­ci­ety of Hos­pi­tal Phar­ma­cists of Aus­tralia (SHPA) res­i­dency pro­gram across the coun­try (W 12 Sep 17), the Na­tional Aus­tralian Phar­macy Stu­dents’ As­so­ci­a­tion (NAPSA) has spo­ken up in sup­port.

NAPSA pres­i­dent San­dra Mi­nas said it wasan out­stand­ing re­sult for the first ac­cred­i­ta­tion round.

SHPA has now launched the next round of ac­cred­i­ta­tion for sites seek­ing SHPA ap­proval to be­gin their res­i­dency pro­gram in 2018.

The SHPA Res­i­dency Pro­gram is a struc­tured, prac­tice-based pro­gram con­ducted over two years pro­vid­ing a fast track to ad­vanced prac­tice for early ca­reer phar­ma­cists as they progress through four six­month ro­ta­tions to foster in­ten­sive ex­pe­ri­en­tial learn­ing.

Mi­nas added that it was im­por­tant that NAPSA mem­bers nor­malise, sup­port, adopt and cham­pion the SHPA pro­gram.
