[Extract] The Australian Pharmacy Council Accreditation Standards for Pharmacy Programs in Australia and New Zealand require that pharmacy programs have a "demonstrable and continuous quality improvement program", stating that "a focus on the quality improvement cycle (including benchmarking activities) is essential for sustaining a quality program".

Challenges to benchmarking include the points of difference between different pharmacy programs, and the existence of four-year undergraduate Bachelor of Pharmacy (BPharm) and two-year postgraduate Master of Pharmacy (MPharm) programs at different institutions around Australia.

This project aimed to develop, refine and validate a tool based on the pharmacy threshold learning outcomes (TLOs) to facilitate benchmarking of students' performances in verbal 'capstone' assessments in Australian pharmacy programs.
