Pharmaceutical Defence Limited

Member-owned, Not-for-profit organisation

PDL (Pharmaceutical Defence Limited) is a member-owned, not-for-profit organisation providing Professional Indemnity (PI) insurance and risk management support to Australian pharmacists, pharmacy interns and students.

PDL partners with many organisations from across the profession, including NAPSA and the branch committees. PDL works collaboratively with the NAPSA team to support pharmacy students and provides funding for their events and other initiatives.

Can pharmacy students become a PDL member?

Yes, and it’s FREE!

PDL encourages all pharmacy students to become a member to access the exclusive services and benefits and to secure professional indemnity (PI) insurance.

As a student, you are automatically registered with the Australian Health Practitioner Regulation Agency (Ahpra) from the time you enrol in your studies.

Student registration includes some of the responsibilities of other registered practitioners so it is possible you will need advice and support. These responsibilities may be relevant during placement or when employed as a pharmacy student. It is beneficial for all students to have a PDL membership, even when they are not practising pharmacists.

Examples of the PDL Master Policy providing student members with assistance include:

  • replying to a complaint notification issued by a regulator; and
  • responding to a notification wherein there has been a failure from a pharmacy student to notify Ahpra of a criminal record (which is an Ahpra requirement).

When you become an intern pharmacist (provisionally registered), is it a requirement of the Pharmacy Board of Australia (PBA) that all interns have PI insurance. Your PDL membership, including PI insurance, will remain free during your internship.

  • Market-leading Professional Indemnity (PI) insurance ($20 million policy coverage)
  • PDL Practice Alerts, resources and guides for professional insights and expertise
  • Free e-subscription to the Australian Journal of Pharmacy (AJP)
  • Eligibility to apply for a PDL Student Grant – with three grants of up to $5,000AUD available each year to attend a recognised conference or event
  • One-to-one, 24/7 incident support and advice from our pharmacist Professional Officers to speak about challenging practice issues and incidents
  • Free membership as a student and intern pharmacist, and a discounted membership during your first five years of general registration

Join PDL
You can become a PDL member by registering at pdl.org.au. It only takes a few minutes to complete an application. We look forward to supporting you throughout your career in pharmacy.
