FIP Global Framework for Quality Assurance of Pharmacy Education
In 2008, the International Pharmaceutical Federation (FIP) adopted the first version of its Global Framework for Quality Assurance of Pharmacy Education. In 2009, FIP adopted a policy statement on quality assurance of pharmacy education, using the Framework as its technical report. The Framework was revised and Version Two was published in 2014. The Framework is offered by FIP as a tool to facilitate the establishment of quality assurance (QA) systems and standards in countries where no such formal systems exist and to improve existing systems. Where regional similarities and collaborations exist or are possible, the Framework may also be adapted and applied at a regional rather than national level. Where resources or other constraints limit the immediate application of some of the principles of the Framework, the document can serve as a “road map” to the future. The Framework can be also used by institutions and individuals in their self-assessment and continuous quality improvement efforts.
The webinar will provide details of the structure and content of the Framework, summarize recommendations made in FIP's policy statement about quality assurance of pharmacy education, and discuss how the two documents can be used globally in support of achievement of the FIP Workforce Development Goals adopted in Nanjing, China, in November 2016.
