New member website
PSA's new website for members was
unveiled at PAC12.
Announcing the release of the new web
site for PSA members, CEO Liesel Wett said
that members would recall that the public
facing web site was refreshed last year
with a contemporary, modern appearance
representing the role pharmacists provide
as part of a broader health care team.
'Today we have built on this new web site to
upgrade our Member services.
'Our new member's area features all you
need for your CPD with access to online
training modules and events in your area.
We have improved access to your online
CPD record and now provide a summary
of your CPD totals helping you to keep on
target throughout the year,' she said.
Ms Wett said that CPD Self Recording
will be much easier with an improved
interface to help member meet Pharmacy
Board of Australia recording requirements.
'The screen helps you calculate time
and credits and allows you to document
additional notes and relevance to your role.
'Our BookZone online bookshop has been
improved to make it easier to browse our
list of pharmacy titles and support your
practice with required texts. And if you are
not yet a member of PSA, we now accept
online membership applications.
'Our new member's web site is a great
achievement. It provides a new foundation
on which PSA can deliver even more new
and exciting online member services today
and into the future'.
