The Safe Medication Practice Unit (SMPU) at Queensland Health, Australia has been working with CoDEG to implement its work on practitioner frameworks. The General Level Framework has now been adapted for use and is implemented state-wide in Queensland, Australia.
The SHPA Clinical Competency Assessment Tool (SHPAClinCAT), a professional development framework, is being rolled out across Australia during 2012. See this website for more details: www.shpa.org.au
A paper published in 2010 reports how the GLF facilitated the improvement in pharmacist's performance.
