Course content

The programme has been designed in close collaboration with NHS partners to support the development of foundation stage pharmacist practitioners following registration. It develops the practitioner student's underpinning knowledge and skills in clinical pharmacy practice and medicines management.

We work on a philosophy of student-centred workplace learning, supported by workbooks and learning sets facilitated by experienced pharmacy practitioners. The practitioner students are expected to take responsibility for managing their learning and achieving the course objectives in support of their continuing professional development (CPD).

Students will gain the understanding needed to conduct effective consultations with patients respecting their diverse needs and with regard to confidentiality and consent and to identify, prioritise and resolve complex pharmaceutical care issues.
