A large-scale survey of recent pharmacy interns and preceptors across Australia is now open.
The Pharmacy Board of Australia (the Board) Pharmacy Internship Experience Survey (PIES) is a national survey giving interns and preceptors the chance to give feedback on their own experiences, so the Board can continue to improve the supervised practice process for future interns and preceptors.
PIES builds on the Board’s 2017 pilot study which surveyed a select group of interns and preceptors and investigated issues relevant to the quality of the intern training experience. The pilot and its rollout to the large-scale survey are part of the Board’s goal to continuously improve the training experience for interns, to better prepare the pharmacy workforce to provide safe services to the public.
Recent interns and preceptors will receive an invitation from the Board by email today.
The survey should take approximately 15 - 20 minutes to complete. The Board asks those invited to take the time to share their experiences.
