I’m Chris John from the Royal Pharmaceutical Society (RPS) – welcome to my blog. As Head of Workforce Development I look at the standards, guidance, and policies that will develop our profession. Having been involved in the RPS approach to supporting its members with revalidation I decided to write a blog about my own journey with staying on the register. Each month I will cover different aspects of a new additional way us pharmacists have to keep our knowledge and skills up-to-date – the peer discussion. The what, who, where and how. I hope you find my blog to be informative as well as an enjoyable read – do let me know.
