RPS Core Advanced e-Portfolio

Pharmacyexcitingcareer

The RPS Core Advanced e-Portfolio is aligned to our core advanced pharmacist curriculum and allows you to record your learning and evidence against the curriculum outcomes. To start recording evidence to demonstrate your learning, you will first need to register with the e-portfolio. The process of accessing the E-portfolio is slightly different for RPS members and non-members.

Access to the RPS Core Advanced e-Portfolio is free to both members and non-members.

The fee for a portfolio submission to be reviewed is £375 for each attempt.

The fee for a portfolio submission to be reviewed for ASII Faculty members is £280 for each attempt. 

Payment will be taken via card. We accept all major credit cards including Visa, Mastercard and American Express (AMEX).

Payment will only be taken once you have submitted your portfolio for assessment.

Is there a fee for resubmission and how much is it?

Any reassessment will incur an assessment fee dependent on the number of domains being reassessed. 

  • Up to three domains: 50% reassessment fee (£225)
  • Four or more domains: Full reassessment fee (£375)

Are there any recurring maintenance fees after I have been credentialed?

No. Once individuals are credentialed, there are no recurring maintenance fees. Maintenance of competence will be through GPhC revalidation. 

Will I need to resubmit a portfolio to maintain my credentialing?

No. Maintenance of competence will be through GPhC revalidation.

 


What are the potential outcomes of the assessment?

The potential assessment outcomes of the advanced pharmacist competency committee are as follows:

Standard met

If the APCC agrees you have provided satisfactory evidence to demonstrate achievement of all the core advanced pharmacist curriculum outcomes under assessment.

Standard not met

If the APCC agrees you not provided satisfactory evidence to demonstrate achievement of all the advanced pharmacist curriculum requirements under assessment. Clear feedback will be provided to you as to which outcomes have not been met and why and you will need to be reassessed in one or more domains of the curriculum. You will not be required to resubmit evidence for those domains where the APCC agreed all the outcomes in that domain had been met.

Insufficient evidence

The outcome indicates that, while some of the evidence provided indicated that you may be practising at the expected level, the gaps in the evidence were such that the panel was unable to confidently conclude the outcome had been fully achieved. You will be required to resubmit for reassessment of the domain(s) where there was insufficient evidence provided. You will not be required to resubmit your evidence for those domains where the APCC agreed all the outcomes in that domain had been met.

All candidates will receive formative feedback on their submission from the committee regardless of the outcome of the assessment.


Who assesses my portfolio?

Portfolios will be assessed by an RPS advanced pharmacist competency committee (APCC), which will consist of at least three panel members fulfilling the following roles:

  • Two advanced pharmacists, at least one of whom will have expertise from the candidate’s stated sector of practice.
  • A pharmacist with appropriate research expertise.
  • A pharmacist with appropriate educational expertise

The committee will be chaired by a senior RPS representative.
