A QCPP Pilot Assessment Program against the revised QCPP Requirements will be commencing in October 2017.

  • The Pilot program will test materials which have been developed to support a smooth implementation for all pharmacies. We will look for as much feedback as possible to identify any issues with resources developed and ways to deliver a more relevant assessment which supports flexibility, innovation and growth
  • The Pilot program covers a range of states, rural, metro, independent, banner, small, large, initial and reaccreditation pharmacies
Transition to assessment of revised QCPP Requirements will occur on 1 March 2018. All assessments conducted after this date will be against the QCPP Requirements 2017.  All assessments* occurring prior to this date will be conducted against the QCPP Requirements 2011.

* Exception: Pharmacies participating in the pilot program.
