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.

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.
