To support and promote the profession of pharmacy in improving medication use and advancing Patient Care through:
* Interacting with other stakeholders in healthcare to enhance healthcare delivery.
* Educating, informing and influencing legislators, policy makers and the public to advance our Vision & Mission.
* Promoting the education & training of sufficient pharmacists & support personnel to meet the needs of the country.
* To be the undisputed Leader & Guardian of the Pharmacy Profession.
As a result of various factors that mitigated against attending CPD evening sessions, the Committee decided to develop an on line interactive CPD facility, which would allow those with difficulties and after hour time constraints to participate in their own time in developing their professional knowledge and skills.
Every member of the PSSA will be able to participate, free of charge, study the topic and then complete the accompanying true or false questions, after which an immediate result will be available, issuing an acknowledgement of success or failure. If the participant is unhappy with the result, the test can be redone.
At this stage, the courses will be supplementary to more formal and accredited further study but will fulfil the requirements of the portfolio of evidence required by the SAPC.
The intention is to offer a wide range of courses not only covering subjects of medicine and health, but of business administration, advertising, marketing, and any other suggested topic related to the practice of the profession in any sector or environment.
