Standards of Practice

SHPA's Standards of Practice series is widely utilised and well-referenced by pharmacists and health professionals seeking guidance on the delivery of clinical, operational and specialty hospital pharmacy services. The series draws on the collective expertise of members across all areas of practice and is written by the respective Specialty Practice Leadership Committees or a dedicated Working Group. 

SHPA is undertaking a comprehensive review and expansion of the series with enhancements relevant to current practice. Members will have the opportunity to provide feedback on draft Standards during advertised consultation periods. Both the new and revised Standards will be published in the Journal of Pharmacy Practice and Research (JPPR) (JPPR) and on our website, available as a member benefit.
