Pharmac online education series

Many of you will be aware of the PHARMAC Seminar Series education sessions.  The seminar series provides high quality education covering a variety of topics, and caters to a range of health professionals.  PHARMAC is aware, however that not everyone can get to the seminars when they are on, and that it is particularly true for rural and provincial primary care clinicians.   In order to reach a wider audience PHARMAC has filmed a selection of seminars and these seminars are now available online. Watching these videos has been approved for CME for Royal New Zealand College of General Practitioners (RNZCGP), and the Maintenance of Professional Standards (MOPS) purposes, provided that a Learning Reflection Form is completed.

You can email a copy of the completed Learning reflection form to and PHARMAC can issue a certificate stating the topic and viewing hours. The certificate can then be given to their case manager for CME approval.
