•    the CPD model which will be introduced via the new Irish Institute of Pharmacy

The meetings also aim to facilitate discussion with pharmacists about how these developments will impact on them and their professional practice in the near future, and the opportunities for the future development of the profession.

These meetings will provide an opportunity for pharmacists to ask questions and share their views on the various initiatives, and contribute to and shape the ongoing implementation work.

Your feedback will be important in informing the next steps of the implementation of the various initiatives.

We look forward to seeing you at the meetings which mark the beginning of the next phase of engagement with the profession on these important developments.
