Course description:

Pharmacists are experts in medicine and responsible for the safe and effective supply of medicines to patients and the public. and for giving advice on how to take prescribed drugs, including monitoring requirements or potential side effects. They also play an important clinical role in the care of patients, including prescribing medicines. As prescribers, pharmacists are required to use diagnostic skills alongside their clinical expertise to deliver high quality, person-centred care.
