Draft National Education Framework document, for the Final Accuracy Checking of Dispensed Medicines and Products

The development of this draft National Education Framework document, for the Final Accuracy Checking of Dispensed medicines and products, has been led by the APTUK Accuracy Checking Pharmacy Technician (ACPT) steering group and APTUK ACPT National Education Framework Working Group.

The Steering group consisted of the APTUK Past President, Tess Fenn, the APTUK Director of Professional Development, Joanne Nevinson, APTUK National Officer for Foundation Practice, Amy Laflin, and APTUK Honorary Member, Karen Harrowing, in the capacity of an external consultant.

The working group consisted of representation of pharmacy professionals from all sectors of pharmacy and home countries who are asked to provide initial feedback on the draft framework alongside the APTUK Professional Committee before these were consulted on more widely.

The APTUK Advisory Group, which included members of the pharmacy team across all sectors and all stages of their pharmacy career, education providers, home countries and lay input, were asked to provide comments and feedback.

Feedback and comments will be considered and included in a final draft document that will be consulted on nationally, by APTUK members, APTUK National Pharmacy Technician Advisory Board, the pharmacy profession and key stakeholders.

The final draft framework will be posted onto the APTUK website for 6 week open consultation.

When published the National Education Framework for Final Accuracy Checking of Dispensed medicines and products will be an online resource only and will be supported by an approval process for training providers to receive APTUK recognistion that they meet the National Education Framework.
