6 Deleting of records / Amending of Records

There is a built-in measure to avoid any accidental deletion of records, that is it is not possible to delete any records once entered. However if the record is not yet approved by the Reviewer, you may amend it by editing it with a new record, ie you override with new data. Pending records that are not approved can thus be amended in this manner. Similarly records that have been accidentally entered or submitted twice, while not being able to be deleted, can be override by amending it with new data. Records that have been approved cannot be amended by user

Continuing Professional Development has been defined as the responsibility of individual pharmacists for systematic maintenance, development and broadening of knowledge, skill and attitudes, to ensure continuing competence as a professional, throughout their careers. The Society therefore recommends that each pharmacist perform this personal and professional responsibility in order to keep up to date to perform at the expected level. This process is continuous involving self-appraisal, personal plan, participation, action and evaluation.

This CPDonline has been developed to help pharmacists keep track of their participation in continuing education program which form part of the CPD achievement. To ensure compliance with the Ministry of Health of Malaysia CPD requirement, the grading system scoring schedule for continuing pharmacy education component provided by the CPD Committee of the Malaysian Pharmacy Board has been adopted for awarding of credit points.
