Symposium closes
All our symposia work sessions have specific learning outcomes which will enable you to see how your practice will benefit from your attendance. We have also
mapped these learning outcomes to the GLF and Advanced Pharmacy Framework (APF) so that you can easily identify the level that the work session is aimed at, and
the professional development benefits you can achieve. Attending these work sessions will give you the opportunity to apply the knowledge learnt in order to
achieve the competencies outlined in the APF. Don’t forget that you can enter your attendance at work sessions into your CPD or Faculty portfolio.
Key to delivery level for work sessions, based on the GLF and APF:
