The Pharmacy Council of Ghana, the regulatory body entrusted with the upholding and enforcement of pharmacy practice laws and standards has developed a ground breaking policy document to guide the administration of Continuous Professional Development (CPD) activities in the country.

CPD activities, over the years, have been largely unregulated due to the absence of a framework to guide their administration and implementation.

The document addresses critical questions regarding the administration of CPDs in Ghana. According to the policy document, a pharmacist shall be required to obtain a minimum of 10 credits annually in order to gain eligibility to yearly renew the pharmacist’s practice license.

The Pharmacy Council is tasked by Section 80 (b) of the Health Professions Regulatory Bodies Act 857, Part 4, to “set standards for CPD of pharmacists and other pharmacy support staffs.”
