The PSI recently notified over 1400 pharmacists of their selection for the 2018/19 ePortfolio Review. In early 2019, these pharmacists will be required to submit evidence of their continuing professional development to the IIOP via their ePortfolio.

Between September and December 2018, the IIOP will hold a series of evening and lunchtime face-to-face and webinar information events to support pharmacists selected for ePortfolio Review.

These events will include;

1.      a focus on the requirements of the 2018/19 ePortfolio Review,

2.      an explanation of the 2018/19 ePortfolio Review Standards,

3.      the timelines for ePortfolio Review,

4.      an introduction to the training support resources,

5.      an opportunity to ask any questions regarding the 2018/19 ePortfolio Review.

Pharmacists who took part in last year’s ePortfolio Review consistently highlighted the IIOP information events as a key source of support in their preparation. They felt more confident in participating in ePortfolio Review and had a clear understanding of what the Standards were and how to access support if needed following attending an event.

The IIOP will hold 10 face-to-face information events (locations listed below) and 18 webinar events. Places for all events can be booked on the IIOP website (
