However please note that in Form 10, there is a section on CPD points on Maklumat Tambahan item 7 on Mata CPE/CPD untuk semasa. Please do fill in some points on your CPD participation and even though not asked for, and do try to enclose the certificate too. Even by being a member of MPS gives you 5 points. Already for the past 3 years on BLESS all pharmacists are also submitting in their certificates and points so keep up the good habit and continue even though the renewal has revert back to manual.


Stiff competition among community pharmacies has been a norm which is inevitable in Malaysia, and thus, the ability to sustain a community pharmacy business is often questioned.

In search of the golden key towards sustainable growth in community pharmacies despite dynamic changes in their business environment, as well as to quest for the core values a community pharmacist should embrace along the journey towards success, the Malaysian Community Pharmacy Business Forum (MyCPBF) decided to make a great comeback, organized by the MPS Young Pharmacists Chapter Kedah-Perlis area in collaboration with the CPD Committee of AIMST University, with event details as below :

Date : 22nd July 2017 (Saturday)
Time : 09.00am - 01.00pm
Venue : AIMST University, Bedong, Kedah

Continuing the success of its inaugural session in 2016, MyCPBF 2.0 aims to serve as the platform for dynamic interactions between young pharmacists and successful young entrepreneurs who have made a name for themselves in both pharmaceutical and non-pharmaceutical-related businesses.

As part of its efforts in promoting the further development and specialization in pharmacy, the Malaysian Academy of Pharmacy will be conducting a series of Therapeutics Updates Tutorials. These tutorials are conducted within the Scope of the BPS (Board Certified Specialist) Syllabus which will also help prepare practicing hospital pharmacists who are interested in taking the examination for BPS which is expected to be held in September or October 2017.

This tutorial is opened to all who have a special interest in pharmacotherapy.

Date: 14-16 July 2017
Venue: LT8 Taylor's University (Lakeside Campus)

Pharmacists in the clinical practice only know too well the importance of a strong knowledge in pharmacotherapy. A strong base of knowledge regarding appropriate usage of drugs and the ability to decide on safe, effective, suitable and economical drugs will increase the incidence of successful treatment outcomes.

BPS is also recognized internationally and has become one of the criteria for specialist accreditation in certain countries.

The speakers are themselves BPS or experienced pharmacists in respective field. They will be using their experience and the latest reference materials, including those from the ACCP, to facilitate your preparation towards becoming a BPS.

Keperluan @ Kehendak?

Anologi: Isi minyak kereta

  1. Full tangki: Kalau isi lagi minyak pasti melempah. (Membazir)
  2. 3/4 tangki: Kalau isi lagi minyak boleh penuh tangki, kalau isi lebih pasti akan melempah. (Kehendak)
  3. Tangki hampir kosong: Mesti isi minyak. Tak isi kenderaan tiada bahan api dan tidak boleh bergerak. (Keperluan)


  1. Contoh suplemen seperti vitamin dan garam mineral jika tubuh kita sudah cukup, kita ambil tambahan pun membazir. Ia akan dikumuhkan dan jika ambil berlebihan akan membebankan organ perkumuhan seperti buah pinggang.
  2. Dalam situasi ini, ambil suplemen boleh membantu meningkatkan kesihatan umum. Tapi jika tidak ambil pun ia tidak memberi impak besar dalam kesihatan sebab boleh top up daripada sumber makanan. Oleh itu dalam keadaan ini ia adalah 'kehendak'.
  3. Dalam situasi ini terbukti keadaan sangat memerlukan. Sudah ada indikasi. Contohnya ibu mengandung didiagnos kurang darah atau dikenali juga 'anemia'. Maka perlu ambil suplemen seperti ferus (zat besi) dan folic acid bagi membantu meningkatkan penghasilan darah. Maka sekarang ia adalah keperluan. Tidak ambil suplemen sukar untuk tingkatkan darah hanya sekadar mendapatkan zat daripada makanan.


Bukan semua keadaan suplemen adalah keperluan. Ia adalah kehendak sahaja. Tidak ambil pun tidak mengapa kecuali sesuatu keadaan itu telah ditentusahkan oleh ujian darah menunjukkan kekurangan vitamin, garam dan mineral barulah pengambilan suplemen adalah suatu keperluan untuk meningkatkan apa yang kurang dalam tubuh.
