Competencies refer to the “observable ability of a health professional integrating knowledge, skills, values, and attitudes” to perform effectively.  Competencies are the ingredients of Competence.  A competent professional is the one possessing the required abilities (competencies) in all domains in a certain context at a defined stage of education or practice. – Frontiers in Pharmacology, Oct 2016

IFAPP and PharmaTrain developed a basic set of 7 domains, 57 competencies, and a Statement of Competence.  The competencies are aligned with the learning outcomes of the IFAPP – King’s College London program.  A standard for competency-based education was established and can now be used for certification.
