Abstract

This Standard references and relies upon the Society of Hospital Pharmacists of Australia (SHPA) Standards of Practice for Clinical Pharmacy Services1 as the foremost Standard. This Standard may overlap with others and depending on the area of specialty practice it may be advisable to refer to additional Standards of Practice.

The use of the word ‘specialisation’ in this standard is in line with the National Competency Standards Framework for Pharmacists in Australia2 where ‘specialisation’ refers to the scope of practice rather than the level of performance. ‘Specialisation’ in itself does not confer additional expertise.

This Standard is for professional practice and is not prepared or endorsed by Standards Australia. It is not legally binding.
