Barriers to CPD need to be addressed
Perceived barriers to continuing professional development (CPD) must be addressed through a combination of regulatory, professional and personal channels, conclude the authors of a review published online in the International Journal of Pharmacy Practice (9 August 2011).
Researchers reviewed 22 studies of CPD in Great Britain and identified barriers, including time, costs, understanding of CPD, support, motivation, attitudes towards compulsory CPD and technical problems. Overall, pharmacists agreed with the principle of CPD, but there was little evidence supporting widespread acceptance and uptake.
